Is there a way to find the polygon that is nearest a given vertex? Is there a way to calculate the shortest distance between a given vertex and some point inside a polygon? If I could do that, I could iterate through all my polygons and determine which one is the shortest distance away.

Thanks!

Think of it this way ...

It will either be a line segment mid-point ... or the closest of the polygons vertices.

Am I wrong ?
