As Far from Land as Possible

current graphs

Given an n x n grid containing only values 0 and 1, where 0 represents water and 1 represents land, find a water cell such that its distance to the nearest land cell is maximized, and return the distance. If no land or water exists in the grid, return -1.

The distance used in this problem is the Manhattan distance: the distance between two cells (x0, y0) and (x1, y1) is |x0 - x1| + |y0 - y1|.

Example 1:

Input: grid = [[1,0,1],[0,0,0],[1,0,1]] Output: 2 Explanation: The cell (1, 1) is as far as possible from all the land with distance 2. Example 2:

Input: grid = [[1,0,0],[0,0,0],[0,0,0]] Output: 4 Explanation: The cell (2, 2) is as far as possible from all the land with distance 4.
