kp#

Query.kp(x, y, z)#

Return keypoint closest to coordinate (x, y, z).

Number of the selected keypoint nearest the x, y, z point.

In the active coordinate system, lowest number for coincident keypoints.

Parameters
xfloat

X-coordinate in the active coordinate system

yfloat

Y-coordinate in the active coordinate system

zfloat

Z-coordinate in the active coordinate system

Returns
int

Keypoint number

Examples

In this example we construct a simple triangle of keypoints in 3D and then find the keypoint closest to the point (1, 1, 1).
