Numpy-based vectorized geospatial functions

## Project description

geog

====

A pure numpy implementation for geodesic functions. The interfaces are

vectorized according to numpy broadcasting rules compatible with a variety of

inputs including lists, numpy arrays, and

[Shapely](http://toblerity.org/shapely/) geometries - allowing for 1-to-1,

N-to-1, or the element-wise N-to-N calculations in a single call.

`geog` uses a spherical Earth model (subject to change) with radius 6371.0 km.

`geog` draws inspiration from [TurfJS](https://www.turfjs.org)

Operations

---------

* `distance` - Compute the distance in meters between any number of longitude,latitude points

* `course` - Compute the forward azimuth between points

* `propagate` - Starting from some points and pointing azimuths, move some

distance and compute the final points.

Getting Started

---------------

Compute the distance in meters between two locations on the surface of the

Earth.

```

>>> import geog

>>> boston = [-71.0589, 42.3601]

>>> la = [-118.2500, 34.0500]

>>> geog.distance(boston, la)

4179393.4717019284

>>> geog.course(boston, la)

176.76437002826202

```

`geog` allows different sizes of inputs conforming to numpy broadcasting

rules

Compute the distances from several points to one point.

```

>>> dc = [-77.0164, 38.9047]

>>> paris = [2.3508, 48.8567]

>>> geog.distance([boston, la, dc], paris)

array([ 5531131.56144631, 9085960.07227854, 6163490.48394848])

```

Compute the element-wise distance of several points to several points

```

>>> sydney = [151.2094, -33.865]

>>> barcelona = [2.1833, 41.3833]

>>> geog.distance([boston, la, dc], [paris, sydney, barcelona])

array([ 5531131.56144631, 12072666.9425518 , 6489222.58111716])

```

`geog` functions can take numpy arrays as inputs

```

>>> import numpy as np

>>> points = np.array([boston, la, dc])

>>> points

array([[ -71.0589, 42.3601],

[-118.25 , 34.05 ],

[ -77.0164, 38.9047]])

>>> geog.distance(points, sydney)

array([ 16239763.03982447, 12072666.9425518 , 15711932.63508411])

```

`geog` functions can also take Shapely geometries as inputs

```

>>> import shapely.geometry

>>> p = shapely.geometry.Point([-90.0667, 29.9500])

>>> geog.distance(points, p)

array([ 2185738.94680724, 2687705.07260978, 1554066.84579387])

```

Other Uses

----------------

Use `propagate` to buffer a single point by passing in multiple angles.

```

>>> n_points = 6

>>> d = 100 # meters

>>> angles = np.linspace(0, 360, n_points)

>>> polygon = geog.propagate(p, angles, d)

```

Compute the length of a line over the surface.

```

>>> np.sum(geog.distance(line[:-1,:], line[1:,:]))

```

Quick Documentation

-------------

`distance(p0, p1, deg=True)`

`course(p0, p1, deg=True, bearing=False)`

`propagate(p0, angle, d, deg=True, bearing=False)`

For all of the above, `p0` or `p1` can be:

- single list, tuple, or Shapely Point of [lon, lat] coordinates

- list of [lon, lat] coordinates or Shapely Points

- N x 2 numpy array of (lon, lat) coordinates

If argument `deg` is False, then all angle arguments, coordinates and

azimuths, will be used as radians. If `deg` is False in `course()`, then it's

output will also be radians.

Consult the documentation on each function for more detailed descriptions of

the arguments.

Conventions

-----------

* All points, or point-like objects assume a longitude, latitude ordering.

* Arrays of points have shape `N x 2`.

* Azimuth/course is measured with 0 degrees as due East, increasing

counter-clockwise so that 90 degrees is due North. The functions that

operate on azimuth accept a `bearing=True` argument to use the more

traditional definition where 0 degrees is due North increasing clockwise such

that that 90 degrees is due East.

Installation

-----------

geog is hosted on PyPI.

```

pip install geog

```
