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 [McGarigal and Marks, 1995].

Parameters
gdfGeoDataFrame

A GeoDataFrame containing objects.

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

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

Examples

>>> buildings_df['fractal'] = momepy.FractalDimension(buildings_df,
...                                                   'area',
...                                                   'peri').series
>>> buildings_df.fractal[0]

Attributes
