As part of my continuing education about the theory and methods underlying Shapely, GEOS, JTS, and the OGC’s Simple Features specs, I’ve written a small package of utilities for working with DE-9IM matrices and patterns: http://bitbucket.org/sgillies/de9im/. Shapely provides the standard (these are probably my favorite OGC standards) predicates as geometry class methods:

>>> from shapely.wkt import loads >>> p = loads('POLYGON ((1.0 0.0, 0.0 -1.0, -1.0 0.0, 0.0 1.0, 1.0 0.0))') >>> q = loads('POLYGON ((3.0 0.0, 2.0 -1.0, 1.0 0.0, 2.0 1.0, 3.0 0.0))') >>> p.disjoint(q) False >>> p.intersects(q) True >>> p.touches(q) True

but what if you wanted to test whether the features touched at exactly one point only? A “side hug”, you might say. Instead of computing the intersection and checking its geometry type, you can use the de9im package to define a DE-9IM matrix pattern and test it against the relation matrix for the two features. The 0 in the pattern below requires that the intersection of the boundaries of the features be a 0-dimensional figure. In other words: a point:

>>> from de9im import pattern >>> side_hug = pattern('FF*F0****') >>> im = p.relate(q) >>> print im FF2F01212 >>> side_hug.matches(im) True

One may also use familiarly named patterns:

>>> from de9im.patterns import touches >>> repr(touches) "DE-9IM or-pattern: 'FT*******||F**T*****||F***T****'" >>> touches.matches(im) True

TODO: Figure out how to actually get changelog content.
