shapely.get_parts#

get_parts(geometry, return_index=False)#

Gets parts of each GeometryCollection or Multi* geometry object; returns a copy of each geometry in the GeometryCollection or Multi* geometry object.

Note: This does not return the individual parts of Multi* geometry objects in a GeometryCollection. You may need to call this function multiple times to return individual parts of Multi* geometry objects in a GeometryCollection.

Parameters
geometryGeometry or array_like
return_indexbool, default False

If True, will return a tuple of ndarrays of (parts, indexes), where indexes are the indexes of the original geometries in the source array.

Returns
ndarray of parts or tuple of (parts, indexes)

Examples

>>> from shapely import MultiPoint
>>> get_parts(MultiPoint([(0, 1), (2, 3)])).tolist()
[<POINT (0 1)>, <POINT (2 3)>]
>>> parts, index = get_parts([MultiPoint([(0, 1)]), MultiPoint([(4, 5), (6, 7)])], return_index=True)
>>> parts.tolist()
[<POINT (0 1)>, <POINT (4 5)>, <POINT (6 7)>]
>>> index.tolist()
[0, 1, 1]
