Approximation of a Cicular Segment by a Series of Line Segments As the accuracy requirement is not so severe, it might be a good idea to approximate it might be a good idea to approximate circular segments by a series of line segments circular segments by a series of line segments
Computing the Barycenter Triangulation The area can be partitioned into triangles. The center of mass can be computed based on areas and mass centers of these triangles.
Computing the Barycenter Positive and Negative Integration Another possible way is to intepret the pa ｔｈ as a graph and compute the integral of the graph. When a segment goes leftwords, the area can be considered negative.
Telling Whether the Barycenter is Inside the Area or Not Summing up angles of the barycenter and two ends of segments is 2π iff it is inside. But approximating an arc with a single line segment may lead to a wrong decision!
Telling Whether the Barycenter is Inside the Area or Not Whether the number of crosses with a ray starting from the barycenter is even/odd can tell outside/inside. Here too, approximating an arc with a line seg. is dangerous!
Telling Whether the Barycenter is Inside the Area or Not Direction of the path segment closest to the barycenter can tell whether or not it is inside the area.
