# geopandas.GeoSeries.skew#

GeoSeries.skew(xs=0.0, ys=0.0, origin='center', use_radians=False)[source]#

Returns a `GeoSeries` with skewed geometries.

The geometries are sheared by angles along the x and y dimensions.

Parameters:
xs, ysfloat, float

The shear angle(s) for the x and y axes respectively. These can be specified in either degrees (default) or radians by setting use_radians=True.

originstring, Point, or tuple (x, y)

The point of origin can be a keyword ‘center’ for the bounding box center (default), ‘centroid’ for the geometry’s centroid, a Point object or a coordinate tuple (x, y).

use_radiansboolean

Whether to interpret the shear angle(s) as degrees or radians

Examples

```>>> from shapely.geometry import Point, LineString, Polygon
>>> s = geopandas.GeoSeries(
...     [
...         Point(1, 1),
...         LineString([(1, -1), (1, 0)]),
...         Polygon([(3, -1), (4, 0), (3, 1)]),
...     ]
... )
>>> s
