GeoDesk for Python Version 0.1.10 introduces geometric filters, which select features based on the properties of their shape. Four new filter methods are available in this release:

  • min_area()

  • max_area()

  • min_length()

  • max_length()

These filters are particularly useful for quality assurance of OpenStreetMap data – they quickly identify features that are abnormally large or small, such as buildings that are classified as “houses,” but in reality represent sheds or garages.
