Sinuosity is a measure of the curviness of a line. More information
SINUOSITY - the ratio of the total length of the line to the straight-line distance from the start point to the end point. The sinuosity of a straight line is 1. If the line is closed (start point equals end point), then the sinuosity is 0. As the line gets more curvy, the sinuosity increases.
Sinuosity is calculated using the formula:
SINUOSITY = LENGTH / SL_DIST
SL_DIST is straight-line distance from start point to end point.
LENGTH is total length of the line segments.
If one or more area and/ or line features are
selected with the Digitizer tool, the
In addition to adding/ updating the measure attributes for the selected feature(s), the combined length and/or enclosed area of the selected line and area features will also be reported by this command.
Measure - Display Feature Measurements
Select the MEASURE - Display Feature Measurements… option from the right-click menu under Analysis/ Measurement to display a dialog (pictured below) listing the measurements and attributes of each selected line and area feature as well as the total combined enclosed area and perimeter/ length of the features. This dialog also allows you to easily export the results to a CSV file.
Choosing the MEASURE - Display Feature
Measurements… option will also populate the Selected Feature Information
window (above), which will display the selected feature measurements and
allow you to export these values to a CSV file.
