how can we get the equal interval points along the line direction?>

Which resampling method would be better to use .

Thanks

hi pari_alf

I'm just going to make a diagram to go with this. So if you can, stay on-line.

Have a look at my graph below. You click on it to get it normal size.

Do you want to be able to divide AB into a set of equal segments, each with its own coordinates ?

OK. I've changed the graph a little to make an easier example.

Let's say A is (2,3) and B is (12,8), and we want to divide the line into 5 equal parts.

(12-2)/5 = 2 and (8-3)/5 = 1 so we can step from point to point by going across 2 and up 1.

The points are (2,3) (4,4) (6,5) (8,6) (10,7) and (12,8)

So now to generalise that into a formula. For the x coordinates :

where i goes from 0 to n

and the y coordinate is similar.
