Let's say we have the following point and polygon:
poly = Polygon([(0, 0), (2,8), (14, 10), (6,1)]) point = Point(4,4)
point lies within
poly, the distance from the first to the latter will be zero (
poly.distance(point) will return
Is there a way to instead calculate the distance to the nearest edge?
Note: Effectively the same question as this, but desire a solution in Python, ideally with Shapely.
