Create/manipulate N-dimensional raster geometries.

Project description

Raster Geometry - Create/manipulate N-dim raster geometric shapes.


This software provides a library for generating or otherwise manipulating N-dimensional raster geometric shapes.

Most of the code is used is used in a number of projects where it is tested against real-life scenarios.

As a result of the code maturity, some of the library components may undergo (eventually heavy) refactoring. While this is not expected, this will be documented. Please file a bug report if you detect an undocumented refactoring.

Releases information are available through NEWS.rst.

For a more comprehensive list of changes see CHANGELOG.rst (automatically generated from the version control system).


The 2D geometrical shapes currently available are:

  • square
  • rectangle
  • rhombus
  • circle
  • ellipse

The 3D geometrical shapes currently available are:

  • cube
  • cuboid
  • rhomboid
  • sphere
  • ellipsoid
  • cylinder

The N-dim geometrical shapes currently available are:

  • cuboid: sum[abs(x_n/a_n)^inf] < 1
  • superellipsoid: sum[abs(x_n/a_n)^k] < 1
  • prism: stack (N-1)-D rendered objects on given axis


Additional may be added in the future.


The recommended way of installing the software is through PyPI:

$ pip install raster_geometry

Alternatively, you can clone the source repository from Bitbucket:

$ git clone
$ cd raster_geometry
$ pip install -e .
