Hi there,

I'm having a problem calculating polygon width. Essentially I have a number of polygons (1000+) that are all irregular, majority trapezoids but some others that probably don't even constitute a shape. What i want to do is find out the width of the polygons at their base (lets call this the shortest width of the trapezoid) and at their top (the largest width of the trapezoid).

Any ideas on how I could go about this? Attached is a picture of what I'm dealing with here:
