Given a centroid and side length, tile an area with regular flat hexagons
A small utility package which calculates a regular hexagonal tiling for an area, given a centroid as a Shapely Point, and a side length.
Hexcover is available on PyPI:
pip install hexcover
from shapely.geometry import Point from hexcover.util import hexagon_coverage # centroid c = Point(0.0, 0.0) coverage = hexagon_coverage(c, 10) # coverage is a namedtuple of seven polygons. The first entry is the central polygon. # Subsequent entries begin directly above the central polygon, and proceed clockwise.
namedtuple has seven fields:
There's an example notebook, and a sample output GeoJSON file showing the result of covering the Crystal Palace Transmitting Station with 100-metre hexagons.
