FRAC_CV (class level)

Description

Coefficient of variation fractal dimension index (Shape metric)

Usage

lsm_c_frac_cv(landscape, directions = 8)

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).

Details

FRAC_{CV} = cv(FRAC[patch_{ij}])

where FRAC[patch_{ij}] equals the fractal dimension index of each patch.

FRAC_CV is a 'Shape metric'. The metric summarises each class as the Coefficient of variation of the fractal dimension index of all patches belonging to class i. The fractal dimension index is based on the patch perimeter and the patch area and describes the patch complexity. The Coefficient of variation is scaled to the mean and comparable among different landscapes.

Units

None

Range

FRAC_CV >= 0

Behaviour

Equals FRAC_CV = 0 if the fractal dimension index is identical for all patches. Increases, without limit, as the variation of the fractal dimension indices increases.

Value

tibble
