    Default how do you find perimiter points?

    If there are many points.

    A point is perimeter such that if drawn an imaginary line in any direction all the other points will be on one side of the line or on the line.

    How can you find out what points will be the perimeter points?

    The points on the perimeter sound like they form a convex hull.
