I suspect most zoning codes recognize compliance with development code requirements is inherently more difficult when a parcel of land is not shaped like a square or a rectangle. In our neck of the woods, it's becoming more and more that we're seeing development proposals on remnant parcels, and just in general irregularly shaped parcels that look less like Wyoming and more like Idaho.

I'm wondering if there's a tool out there being used to measure irregularity, basically how much deviation a parcel is from a square or rectangle that takes into account the number of sides, how far of a deviation of angle from 90 degrees, etc.? I seems like there can be a quantitative way to measure this, a correlation coefficient of sorts?
