Description

Marginal entropy \[H(x)\]

Usage

1
lsm_l_ent(landscape, neighbourhood = 4, base = "log2")

Arguments

landscape

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

neighbourhood

The number of directions in which cell adjacencies are considered as neighbours: 4 (rook's case) or 8 (queen's case). The default is 4.

base

The unit in which entropy is measured. The default is "log2", which compute entropy in "bits". "log" and "log10" can be also used.

Details

It measures a diversity (thematic complexity) of landscape classes.

Value

tibble
