The Solar Feature Catalogues for sunspots and active regions measured with SOHO/MDI instrument and Ca II K3 spectroheliograph of the Paris-Meudon Obser- vatory are analyzed with the automated classification technique for sunspot groups and active region polarities. We report the first classification results for daily vari- ations of tilt angles (normal and trigonometric ones) in sunspot groups (SG) and active (AR) regions in the cycle 23. The average normal tilts are presented for every year at the ascending and descending phases of the cycle 23 which are similar to those deduced by other authors for the cycles 19-22. The normal tilts of both the sunspot groups and active regions are shown to increase in the ascending phase and a decrease in the descending phase. Similar to SG and AR areas, the trigonometric tilts are shown to have the noticeable North-South asymmetry with the Southern hemisphere dominant in the selected ascending and descending periods. The nor- mal tilt variations with latitude follow Joy?s law revealing a periodicity along the meridian of about 10 and reaching the maximum of 14 at the latitude of about 32 corresponding to the top of the "royal zone" where the sunspots appear. The variations of polarity separation with a latitude are in an anti-phase with those of the tilts reaching a maximum at the latitude of 35 and showing a small positive separation for the groups/active regions in a vicinity of the average tilts ?40. The ratio R of the polarity separation to the trigonometric tilt fits the linear function of a latitude ' as R = -0.0213' - 0.1245 confirming positive separation for the polarities of active regions with the average tilts, or the dominance of activity in the Southern hemisphere activity, for the selected period of observations.
