Illustration of filament position angles, measured east of north, and tangent vectors along a particular filament. Local column density profiles are calculated for each pixel along the crest of the filament, in the direction perpendicular to the tangent vectors. If the local perpendicular direction is closer than 45° from the filament mean orientation, the corresponding local profile is not considered when averaging the column density profiles.
