You are here: Calculators > AngularityCalculator


Calculates the "angularity" of a linear or area feature. Angularity indicates the degree of curvature of a feature. The higher the value, the more curved its geometry.

A value of 0 indicates the geometry is a straight line. This mode works on linear and polygonal geometries, and all other geometries will receive a value of 0.

The calculation of this property utilizes the angle between segments and, as a result, linear and polygonal features must have more than one segment to receive a non-zero value. Arcs are stroked into lines before determining this value. The actual value is the sum of the angles between the segments divided by the total length of the segments.

Editing Transformer Parameters

Using a set of menu options, transformer parameters can be assigned by referencing other elements in the workspace. More advanced functions, such as an advanced editor and an arithmetic editor, are also available in some transformers. To access a menu of these options, click beside the applicable parameter. For more information, see Transformer Parameter Menu Options.
