#' Check input landscape

#' @description Check input landscape
#'
#' @param landscape Raster* Layer, Stack, Brick, Stars or a list of rasterLayers
#' @param verbose Print warning messages.
#'
#' @details This function extracts basic information about
#' the input landscape.
#' It includes a type of coordinate reference system (crs) -
#' either "geographic", "projected", or NA,
#' units of the coordinate reference system, a class of the input landscape's
#' values and the number of classes found in the landscape.
