pygeoda.rook_weights(geoda_obj, **kwargs)[source]

Rook Contiguity Spatial Weights Create a Rook contiguity weights with options of “order”, “include lower order” and “precision threshold”

  • geoda_obj (geoda) – An instance of geoda class

  • order (int, optional) – order of contiguity

  • include_lower_order (bool, optional) – whether or not the lower order neighbors should be included in the weights structure

  • precision_threshold (float, optional) – the precision of the underlying shape file is insufficient to allow for an exact match of coordinates to determine which polygons are neighbors


An instance of Weight object
