Description

This function quantifies sources of agreement and disagreement between a reference map for time 1, a reference map for time 2 and a simulated map for time 2 to provide meaningful information about the performance of land use change simulations.

AgreementBudget(x, ...)

## S4 method for signature 'ThreeMapComparison'
AgreementBudget(x, ...)

## S4 method for signature 'RasterLayer'
AgreementBudget(x, ...)

Arguments

x

a ThreeMapComparison object or RasterLayer

...

additional arguments to ThreeMapComparison. Only required if x is not a ThreeMapComparison object

Details

The types of agreement and disagreement considered are those descibed in Pontius et al. (2011):

  1. Persistence simulated correctly (agreement)

  2. Persistence simulated as change (disagreement)

  3. Change simulated incorrectly (disagreement)

  4. Change simulated correctly (agreement)

  5. Change simulated as persistence (disagreement)

Value

An AgreementBudget object.
