class momepy.Orientation(gdf, verbose=True)[source]#

Calculate the orientation of object. The deviation of orientation from cardinal directions are captured. Here ‘orientation’ is defined as an orientation of the longest axis of bounding rectangle in range 0 - 45. The orientation of LineStrings is represented by the orientation of the line connecting the first and the last point of the segment.
