## Challenge #220: Hedge Detection

8 - Asteroid

Should have used the spatial process cut option, but instead I brute forced the hedge lengths

11 - Bolide

Hi! Really nice challenge! Here my solution 🙂

8 - Asteroid

This one was tougher that it looked! I was unable to keep my eyes on my own paper. HT to @T_Willins for finding an elegant and obvious solution to the total hedge length that I 100% ripped off.

Reposting, tracker seems to have missed it.

Interesting challenge!

Curious what kind of use case this might help with, particularly in the world of farming@wwatson or anyone else?

15 - Aurora

Challenge 220 is done! Went for as few tools as possible, managed to get it down to 9 tools eventually, so thankful to the spatial functions available in the formula tool!
(included a text input for reference table to create the fields)

11 - Bolide

I admit defeat. As @TonyA I tried several approaches to avoid any hard-coding, but was trumped by some of the irregular shapes.

This was one of the best attempts (and the only one I saved)...

M-O should be an edge. Then things would be easier...

So I went with an input text with the vertices as others have done.

Spoiler

I reuse some of the tools I created while trying the not-hard-coding... not all was lost.

My solution definitely isn't dynamic. I'm curious if anyone else has developed a dynamic response?

8 - Asteroid

Great question. I assume you mean how to dynamically define the points that make up each field, and how to get them in order to make a proper polygon I did not solve that one either, although I think the text input I used is a bit cleaner than what you did.

After that, though, my solution is dynamic (attached). Messy - I'm sure there's a better way to compute hedge length than what I did.

Congrats!

8 - Asteroid

Getting the inner hedge length was really challenging!
