Java Exercises: Read the mass data and find the number of islands

Java Basic: Exercise-237 with Solution

There are 10 vertical and horizontal squares on a plane. Each square is painted blue and green. Blue represents the sea, and green represents the land. When two green squares are in contact with the top and bottom, or right and left, they are said to be ground. The area created by only one green square is called "island". For example, there are five islands in the figure below.
Write a Java program to read the mass data and find the number of islands.

Input:
A single data set is represented by 10 rows of 10 numbers representing green squares as 1 and blue squares as zeros.
Output: For each data set, output the number of islands.

Java Basic Exercises: Read the mass data and find the number of islands.

Sample Solution:

Java Code:

  import java.util.Scanner;

public class test {

	public static boolean[][] map;

	public static int[][] move = {{1, 0}, {0, 1}, {-1, 0}, {0, -1}};

	public static void fds(int i, int j){
		map[i][j] = false;
		for(int k=0;k<4;k++){
			int i2 = i+move[k][0];
			int j2 = j+move[k][1];
			if(0<=i2&&i2<10&&0<=j2&&j2<10&&map[i2][j2])fds(i2,j2);
		}
	}
	public static void main(String[] args) {
		System.out.println("Input 10 rows of 10 numbers representing green squares (island) as 1 and blue squares (sea) as zeros");
		Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);
				map = new boolean[10][10];
			for(int i=0;i<10;i++){
				char[] s = sc.next().toCharArray();
				for(int j=0;j<10;j++){
					map[i][j] = s[j]=='1';
				}
			}
			int x = 0;
			for(int i=0;i<10;i++){
				for(int j=0;j<10;j++){
					if(map[i][j]){
						fds(i, j);
						x++;
					}
				}
			}
			System.out.println("Number of islands:");   
			System.out.println(x);
	}
}

Sample Output:

Input 10 rows of 10 numbers representing green squares (island) as 1 and blue squares (sea) as zeros
