# Linear Evaluation of Actual Points Program (LEAPP)

## Keywords:

linear evaluation, hough transform## Abstract

How one intuits a series of points that form one or more lines is a physiological and mathematical problem. To quantify the mathematical portion of this phenomenon, a Linear Evaluation of Actual Points Program (LEAPP) algorithm was written inc++. This program uses the Hough transform to convert Cartesian (x, y) coordi nates into Hough space (r, q). Line intersections in Cartesian space are represented by points of intersection or accumulations in Hough space. These intersections are stored in a temporary vote space matrix of size (n = 100, m = 180). Then values span the data set in incremental length units to the maximum Euclidean distance. The m values in the vote space matrix are the compass angles in degrees from 0˚ (North) to 180° (South). Based on the accumulation of this n by m matrix, physiographic lineations can be represented.## Downloads
