shapely.normalize#

normalize(geometry, **kwargs)#

Converts Geometry to normal form (or canonical form).

This method orders the coordinates, rings of a polygon and parts of multi geometries consistently. Typically useful for testing purposes (for example in combination with equals_exact).

Parameters
geometryGeometry or array_like
**kwargs

For other keyword-only arguments, see the NumPy ufunc docs.

Examples

>>> from shapely import MultiLineString
>>> line = MultiLineString([[(0, 0), (1, 1)], [(2, 2), (3, 3)]])
>>> normalize(line)
<MULTILINESTRING ((2 2, 3 3), (0 0, 1 1))>
