lsm_c_cpland(
  landscape,
  directions = 8,
  consider_boundary = FALSE,
  edge_depth = 1
)

Arguments

landscape

Raster* Layer, Stack, Brick, SpatRaster (terra), stars, or a list of rasterLayers.

directions

The number of directions in which patches should be connected: 4 (rook's case) or 8 (queen's case).

consider_boundary

Logical if cells that only neighbour the landscape boundary should be considered as core

edge_depth

Distance (in cells) a cell has the be away from the patch edge to be considered as core cell

Details

CPLAND = (\frac{∑ \limits_{j = 1}^{n} a_{ij}^{core}} {A}) * 100

where a_{ij}^{core} is the core area in square meters and A is the total landscape area in square meters.

CPLAND is a 'Core area metric'. It is the percentage of core area of class i in relation to the total landscape area. A cell is defined as core area if the cell has no neighbour with a different value than itself (rook's case). Because CPLAND is a relative measure, it is comparable among landscapes with different total areas.

Units

Percentage

Range

0 <= CPLAND < 100

Behaviour

Approaches CPLAND = 0 if CORE = 0 for all patches. Increases as the amount of core area increases, i.e. patches become larger while being rather simple in shape.

Value

tibble
