The chiral geometry of the angular momentum in the intrinsic frame is extracted from angular momentum projected wave functions in the laboratory frame by the K-Plot and Azimuthal-Plot. The method is demonstrated by an application to the chiral doublet bands in 128Cs, based on the standard pairing-plus-quadrupole Hamiltonian. The observed energy spectra and the electromagnetic transitions are well-reproduced, and the K-Plot and Azimuthal-Plot obtained give evolution of angular momentum geometry with spin, by which the chirality is demonstrated.
