# MinimumSpanningTree

Repository source: MinimumSpanningTree

### Description¶

This example shows how to find the minimum spanning tree. The input graph is:

and the minimum spanning tree computed is :

You must have compiled VTK with VTK_USE_BOOST=ON to use this functionality. You must also link to vtkInfovis.

#include <vtkBoostPrimMinimumSpanningTree.h>
#include <vtkDataSetAttributes.h>
#include <vtkDoubleArray.h>
#include <vtkMutableUndirectedGraph.h>
#include <vtkNew.h>
#include <vtkTree.h>

int main(int, char*[])
{
vtkNew<vtkMutableUndirectedGraph> g;

// Create 3 vertices

// Create a fully connected graph

// Create the edge weight array
vtkNew<vtkDoubleArray> weights;
weights->SetNumberOfComponents(1);
weights->SetName("Weights");

// Set the edge weights
weights->InsertNextValue(1.0);
weights->InsertNextValue(1.0);
weights->InsertNextValue(2.0);

// Add the edge weight array to the graph

// Output original graph info
std::cout << "Number of vertices: " << g->GetNumberOfVertices() << std::endl;
std::cout << "Number of edges: " << g->GetNumberOfEdges() << std::endl;
g->Dump();

// Setup the minimum spanning tree filter
vtkNew<vtkBoostPrimMinimumSpanningTree> minimumSpanningTreeFilter;
minimumSpanningTreeFilter->SetOriginVertex(v1);
minimumSpanningTreeFilter->SetInput(g);
minimumSpanningTreeFilter->SetEdgeWeightArrayName("Weights");

// Compute the minimum spanning tree
minimumSpanningTreeFilter->Update();

// Get the output tree
vtkSmartPointer<vtkTree> minimumSpanningTree;
minimumSpanningTree->ShallowCopy(minimumSpanningTreeFilter->GetOutput());

// Output information about the minimum spanning tree
std::cout << "Number of vertices: "
<< minimumSpanningTree->GetNumberOfVertices() << std::endl;
std::cout << "Number of edges: " << minimumSpanningTree->GetNumberOfEdges()
<< std::endl;

return EXIT_SUCCESS;

cd MinimumSpanningTree/build


If VTK is installed:

cmake ..


If VTK is not installed but compiled on your system, you will need to specify the path to your VTK build:

cmake -DVTK_DIR:PATH=/home/me/vtk_build ..


Build the project:

make


and run it:

./MinimumSpanningTree


WINDOWS USERS

Be sure to add the VTK bin directory to your path. This will resolve the VTK dll's at run time.
