Description

Cross tabulate land use transitions using raster::crosstab. This step should form the basis of further research into the processes driving the most important transitions in the study region (Pontius et al., 2004).

crossTabulate(x, y, ...)

## S4 method for signature 'RasterLayer,RasterLayer'
crossTabulate(x, y, categories,
  labels = as.character(categories), ...)

## S4 method for signature 'ObsLulcRasterStack,ANY'
crossTabulate(x, y, times, ...)

Arguments

x

RasterLayer representing land use map from an earlier timestep or an ObsLulcRasterStack object containing at least two land use maps for different points in time

y

RasterLayer representing land use map from a later timestep. Not used if x is an ObsLulcRasterStack object

...

additional arguments to raster::crosstab

categories

numeric vector containing land use categories to consider. Not used if x is an ObsLulcRasterStack object

labels

character vector (optional) with labels corresponding to categories. Not used if x is an ObsLulcRasterStack object

times

numeric vector representing the time points of two land use maps from ObsLulcRasterStack

Value

A data.frame.

## Load observed land use maps

crossTabulate(x=obs, times=c(0,14))

## RasterLayer input
