rectangularity — Shape factor for the rectangularity of a region.
rectangularity calculates the rectangularity of the
To determine the rectangularity, first a rectangle is computed that has the same first and second order moments as the input region. The computation of the rectangularity measure is finally based on the area of the difference between the computed rectangle and the input region normalized with respect to the area of the rectangle.
In the documentation of this chapter (Regions / Features), you can find an image illustrating regions which vary in their rectangularity.
rectangularity returns the value 1. The more the
input region deviates from a perfect rectangle, the less the returned
Rectangularity will be.
In case of an empty region the operator
the value 0 (if no other behavior was set (see
If more than one region is passed the numerical values of the
rectangularity are stored in a tuple, the position of a value in the tuple
corresponding to the position of the region in the input tuple.
For input regions which orientation cannot be computed by using second
order moments (as it is the case for square regions, for example),
Rectangularity is underestimated by up to 10%
depending on the orientation of the input region.
Region(s) to be examined.
Rectangularity of the input region(s).
0 <= Rectangularity && Rectangularity <= 1.0
rectangularity returns the value TRUE
if the input is not empty.
The behavior in case of empty input (no input regions available) is
set via the operator
The behavior in case of empty region (the region is the empty set) is set via
If necessary an exception is raised.
