SplitArea - Defining subdivision area parameters

Currently the SplitArea function is defined by the number of splits (correct?). Is the SplitArea function capable of recognizing resulting subdivisions areas much like the subsidization algorithm? If not, can the subdivision algorithm tool be written into a rule function? Thank you.

The splitArea function doesn't necessarily have to define an explicit number of splits.  You could say, for example, split a lot into equal area pieces that are close to 100m^2 in area:  splitArea(x) { ~100 : Piece }*

I'm not sure what you mean by "recognizing resulting subdivisions".  Once you do a split, you can perform other operations on the resulting pieces.

I'm also not sure what subdivision algorithm you are referring to.  Maybe you are interested a recursive subdivision algorithm?  You can also write a rule that recursively subdivides a lot into pieces.  Depending on what you want exactly, it could be possible to write a rule to perform the subdivision using splits or splitArea operations.
