momepy.FractalDimension

class momepy.FractalDimension(gdf, areas=None, perimeters=None)[source]

Calculates fractal dimension of each object in given GeoDataFrame.

\[{2log({{perimeter} \over {4}})} \over log(area)\]

Based on [McG95].

Parameters
gdfGeoDataFrame

GeoDataFrame containing objects

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

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

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

the name of the dataframe column, np.array, or pd.Series where is stored perimeter value. If set to None, function will calculate perimeters during the process without saving them separately.

Examples

>>> buildings_df['fractal'] = momepy.FractalDimension(buildings_df, 'area', 'peri').series
100%|██████████| 144/144 [00:00<00:00, 3928.09it/s]
>>> buildings_df.fractal[0]
1.0726778567038908
