How can I get the average width of a region or inside a curve? or How can I calculate minimum,maximum, and average width of an irregular polygon? I have attached a figure, I want to know how can I calculate width of yellow areas which are inside the polygons that exist in the main shape file.

    Do you need a one-time solution, or is this going to be an oft-repeated task that you'll need a model or a script for? Oct 22, 2019 at 17:27
  • is it possible to share both of them? this is an oft-repeated but I am looking for a one-time solution too.

  • I would say at least 3 of the yellow patches are outside the polygon.

  • Yes, the problem is the thing that you mentioned. All these regions are not enclosed by the polygon.

  • You also need to define the rules for when you stop measuring. I.e. Why did you stop where you did with your yellow patch? What was your decision making process?
