xrspatial.proximity.manhattan_distance(x1: float, x2: float, y1: float, y2: float)float[source]

Calculates Manhattan distance (sum of distance in x and y directions) between (x1, y1) and (x2, y2).

x1: float

x-coordinate of the first point.

x2: float

x-coordinate of the second point.

y1: float

y-coordinate of the first point.

y2: float

y-coordinate of the second point.

distance: float

Manhattan distance between two points.

Imports >>> from xrspatial import manhattan_distance as md >>> point_a = (142.32, 23.23) >>> point_b = (312.54, 432.01)

Calculate Euclidean Distance >>> dist = md(point_a[0], point_b[0], point_a[1], point_b[1]) >>> print(dist) 196075.9368
