How to represent a polygon uniquely using fixed number of parameters?
I am working on the problem of generation of plausible looking layout regions. Right now we are working by generating the region areas as rectangles, but want to extend it to polygons. Working on rectangles is easy since it can be uniquely represented using a fixed number of parameters (x and y coords of top left corner, width and height). Is there any way to represent general polygons using some fixed number of parameters?
