This paper deals with the automation of the cartographic generalisation and proposes a new measure of the orientation of a building. The description of this characteristic is a complex issue, as if the computing of orientation is relatively clear for a segment or a line, this is not the case for a polygon. Thus, existing measures of orientation are briefly reviewed. Our measure is inspired by the measure of building orientation of walls, modulo . The proposed modification is an adaptation of this measure modulo /2, associated with a confidence indicator on it, and is called Wall statistical weighting. We show that this new measure can be combined with existing ones to better describe and generalise buildings.
