## Challenge #220: Hedge Detection

My solution for Challenge #220

17 - Castor

Wondering if the farmer set up a Hedge fund to buy this place?

I think that I went about this in a very long route - gonna go look at other folks solutions now

Update: When I went back - @RolandSchubert did the 3rd piece (unique hedges) in a much more elegant way.

- started by creating a text input that listed the points that marked out a field.
- Then built the polygons for each field
- Combined these together to find the whole farm size
- Finally - created a unique list of vertices (hedges) and then measured them

Haha - an excellent challenge!  Not my most efficient work, but I did get there eventually.

Solved without lookup tables.

Defined the fields' points in the Map Input tool. The rest is pretty dynamic using Convex Hull. Total hedge length depends on the ends of each line segment having a different latitude. This could be fixed with a change in the formula, but it's not a problem with these points.

Need to hardcode every field, but only a few tools required.
