Due to the variety of shapes as well as the diversity of applications there does not exist any single method for computing the shape orientation of all shapes. In this paper, we introduce a new shape orientation measure, shape orientation pattern, to find the crisp and fuzzy shape orientation as well as shape orientability from any shape. We also illustrate that the new shape orientation measure can be used as a RST invariant shape descriptor.
