Calculates some characteristics of the polygons from a polygon dataset
A Polygon feature class
A new Polygon dataset
All original attributes are preserved.
New fields added to the attribute table
ET_Length - the length of the longest axis
in the units of the Spatial Reference of the input
ET Width - the length of shortest side of the
bounding rectangle aligned with the longest axis in the units of the Spatial Reference of the input
ET Circ - Circularity ratio - for a circle
the circularity will be 1. The thinner the polygon is the smaller the
circularity will be.
ET Thick - Thickness ratio expressed as a ratio of the polygon area versus the area of its
minimum bounding square. The ratio will have value of 1 for a square. The smaller the value
is, the thinner the polygon is.
ET_Parts - the number of parts that the polygon has
ET_Holes - the number of holes in the polygon
ET_HasArcs - if the polygon has true arc segments - 1 otherwise - 0
ET_Fract - the fractal dimension (indication of the complexity) of
the polygon boundary. The value is between 1 and 2. The more
complex the polygon boundary is the larger the fractal dimension will be.
Fractal Dimension of the polygon boundaries is calculated using the Box Counting method (1)
Calculating the Fractal Dimension and Polygon Depth is time consuming. If you don't need these characteristics, uncheck the options
for faster processing.
