Function squaredSegmentDistance

  • The function calculates the squared distance from a point to a line segment. Using squared distances avoids costly square root operations and doesn't affect the result because we're only interested in relative distances.


    • point: [number, number]

      The point from which distance is to be measured

    • lineStart: [number, number]

      The start point of the line segment

    • lineEnd: [number, number]

      The end point of the line segment

    Returns number

    The squared distance from the point to the line segment
