Dear All,

We were just compiling Boost Geometry Extension using VS 2017 64 bit and Warning Level 4.
Doing that showed a few warnings regarding size_t to int conversions which you might want to change.

It is in the file:
Line 436:
int n = boost::size(output_collection);
and Line 580
int size = 0, previous_size = 0;

We assume that both should be size_t.

Thanks a lot for all your hard work


Best regards,

Subject: [geometry] Polygons appear to have serious rounding errors

Hi all,

I've been trying to debug an issue with geographic_point_circle wherein I can't seem to create a circle of radius 10 metres.

The easy-to-reproduce symptom is that the area of the circle varies greatly with only a small change in latitude or longitude.

See this StackOverflow post for details:
In order to produce a suitable circle of that scale, I need to use long double in my point type, but with an epsilon of ~1mm, a regular double ought to work fine. Is there something I'm missing about the implementation of point_circle or bg::area that would imply that this is expected behaviour?

Kind regards,
