3 DISTANCE FROM A POINT TO A LINE The coordinate differences again can be reused, and an approximation for |AP| and |BP| may be sufficient. With integer coordinates for A, B, and P, these formulae can be computed without using floating point, although care is required to prevent overflow. For example, the worst case for three points in a 512 × 512 region gives a value of 262,144 for a2, whose square exceeds 32 bits. See also (3) Useful 2D Geometry, Andrew S. 4 A N EASY BOUNDING C IRCLE Jon Rokne University of Calgary Calgary, Alberta, Canada In Graphics Gems (Ritter, 1990), we find a near-optimal algorithm for computing a bounding sphere for N points in 3D space.

2. 00 for normal scanline traversal, since all sequences that penetrate the circle exit and continue all the way to the screen edge and thus are counted. For Fig. 3, a 1024 ϫ 1024 screen is traversed by three methods: normal scanline traversal, a Peano curve, and a Hilbert curve. ) The coherence of 1000 circles centered at random on-screen positions is averaged for a range of radii. 00 measure of conventional scanline traversal. The Hilbert curve appears superior, and is easier to generate. Better performance from a real renderer can be expected simply by choosing either of these alternative traversal sequences.

2. The sequentially visited areas always are adjacent. Both properties decrease the reloading of memory by minimizing the number of times an object area is exited and reentered. Assuming that the traversal sequence is fixed rather than adaptive, its selection must be based on shape alone. Space-Filling Curves Some space-filling curves can exploit coherence in two dimensions despite a range of object area sizes. As fractals, they are self-similar at multiple resolutions. Thus, if they do a good job of visiting all the pixels corresponding to a particular object area at one scale, then they may have Normal unidirectional scanline traversal Peano Curve Hilbert Curve Figure 1.
