classmethod
from_dataframe
(df, geom_col='geometry', **kwargs)[source]¶ Construct a weights object from a pandas dataframe with a geometry column. This will cast the polygons to PySAL polygons, then build the W using ids from the dataframe.
 Parameters
 df
DataFrame
a :class: pandas.DataFrame containing geometries to use for spatial weights
 geom_col
str
the name of the column in df that contains the geometries. Defaults to geometry
 idVariable
str
the name of the column to use as IDs. If nothing is provided, the dataframe index is used
 ids
list
a list of ids to use to index the spatial weights object. Order is not respected from this list.
 id_order
list
an ordered list of ids to use to index the spatial weights object. If used, the resulting weights object will iterate over results in the order of the names provided in this argument.

classmethod
from_iterable
(iterable, sparse=False, **kwargs)[source]¶ Construct a weights object from a collection of arbitrary polygons. This will cast the polygons to PySAL polygons, then build the W.
 Parameters

classmethod
from_shapefile
(filepath, idVariable=None, full=False, **kwargs)[source]¶ Queen contiguity weights from a polygon shapefile.
 Parameters

Examples
>>> from libpysal.weights import Queen >>> import libpysal >>> wq=Queen.from_shapefile(libpysal.examples.get_path("columbus.shp")) >>> "%.3f"%wq.pct_nonzero '9.829' >>> wq=Queen.from_shapefile(libpysal.examples.get_path("columbus.shp"),"POLYID") >>> "%.3f"%wq.pct_nonzero '9.829' >>> wq=Queen.from_shapefile(libpysal.examples.get_path("columbus.shp"), sparse=True) >>> pct_sp = wq.sparse.nnz *1. / wq.n**2 >>> "%.3f"%pct_sp '0.098'
Notes
Queen contiguity defines as neighbors any pair of polygons that share at least one vertex in their polygon definitions.
