Proximity of Points to a PolyLine
My students are exploring geometry by aligning and scheduling bus lines to serve our college. I am curious if there is an easy way to determine the average proximity of a set of points from a PolyLine. How do I determine how near the PolyLine is to the set of points?
(This may be more of a statistics operation, since the PolyLine could be considered as a regression line and the proximity approximated by r-squared.)
Any other ways of looking at this situation would be very much appreciated! Thanks!
