Let' say I have the matrix P contain 2D point data(20 points):

```1	2
1.5	2
2	2
2.5	2
3	2
3.5	2
4	2
4.5	2
5	2
5.5	2
1	4
1.5	4
2.5	4
3.5	4
4	4
4.5	4
5	4
5.5	4
4.5	3
1.5	3
```

And, from that data, I can draw the boundary of data. The result is rectangular shape as bellow image: And then, I want to divide the rectangle into the strip with user-defined width as follow: Viswadeep Lebakula on 20 Jul 2021
Filename ='P.csv';
xmin = min(data(:, 1));
xmax = max(data(:, 1));
ymin = min(data(:, 2));
ymax = max(data(:, 2));
figure;
scatter(data(:, 1),data(:, 2),15,"filled");
xlabel('X - Axis')
ylabel('Y - Axis')
hold on;
rectangle('Position',[xmin ymin xmax-xmin ymax-ymin],'EdgeColor','r',...
'LineWidth',1.2)
% Calculating length and strips
Polygon_Length = max(xmax-xmin,ymax-ymin);
Userdefined_Strip_Width = 1;
strips = Polygon_Length/Userdefined_Strip_Width;
% Dividing rectangle into multiple strips
for i = 1:strips
x1= xmin + (i*Userdefined_Strip_Width);
y1= ymax;
x2= xmin + (i*Userdefined_Strip_Width);
y2= ymin;
plot([x1 x2], [y1 y2])
end
