The operator convexityconvexityConvexityconvexityConvexityConvexity calculates the convexity of each input region of RegionsRegionsRegionsRegionsRegionsregions.


If is the area of the convex hull and the original area of the region the shape factor C is defined as:

The shape factor C is 1 if the region is convex (e.g., rectangle, circle etc.). If there are indentations or holes C is smaller than 1.

In the documentation of this chapter (Regions / Features), you can find an image illustrating regions which vary in their convexity.

In case of an empty region the operator convexityconvexityConvexityconvexityConvexityConvexity returns the value 0 (if no other behavior was set (see set_systemset_systemSetSystemset_systemSetSystemSetSystem)). If more than one region is passed the numerical values of the contour length are stored in a tuple, the position of a value in the tuple corresponding to the position of the region in the input tuple.

Assertion: Convexity <= 1


The operator convexityconvexityConvexityconvexityConvexityConvexity returns the value 2 (H_MSG_TRUE) if the input is not empty. The behavior in case of empty input (no input regions available) is set via the operator set_system('no_object_result',<Result>)set_system("no_object_result",<Result>)SetSystem("no_object_result",<Result>)set_system("no_object_result",<Result>)SetSystem("no_object_result",<Result>)SetSystem("no_object_result",<Result>). The behavior in case of empty region (the region is the empty set) is set via set_system('empty_region_result',<Result>)set_system("empty_region_result",<Result>)SetSystem("empty_region_result",<Result>)set_system("empty_region_result",<Result>)SetSystem("empty_region_result",<Result>)SetSystem("empty_region_result",<Result>). If necessary an exception is raised.
