momepy.FloorArea#

class momepy.FloorArea(gdf, heights, areas=None)[source]#

Calculates floor area of each object based on height and area. The number of floors is simplified into the formula: height / 3. It is assumed that on average one floor is approximately 3 metres.

\[area * \frac{height}{3}\]
Parameters
gdfGeoDataFrame

A GeoDataFrame containing objects to analyse.

heightsstr, list, np.array, pd.Series

The name of the dataframe column, np.array, or pd.Series where height values are stored.

areasstr, list, np.array, pd.Series (default None)

The name of the dataframe column, np.array, or pd.Series where area values are stored. If set to None, this will calculate areas during the process without saving them separately.

Examples

>>> buildings['floor_area'] = momepy.FloorArea(buildings,
...                                            heights='height_col').series
