5.1.4 neighbors What is this node for?

The node represents the neighborhood relationship of positions node. Attributes

This node has a mandatory attribute algorithm. This attribute represents an algorithm for calculating neighborhood of positions. Currently, only NearestNeighbor is available. This algorithm calculates neighborhood depending on Euclidean distance. Child Node

This node has neighbor nodes that represents a neighborhood positions for each positions.

Each neighbor has two mandatory attribtues.


The id of the corresponding position node.


A set of position ids including itself. The delimiter is semicolon.

For example, a position whose id is 1 has a neighborhood whose id is 2, the representation is:

<neighbor id="1" ids="1;2"/>
