R/landscapeR-package.R

#' landscapeR: A landscape simulator for R.
#'
#' This package is aimed at simulating categorical landscapes on actual geographical realms,
#' starting from either empty landscapes, or landscapes provided by the user (e.g. land use maps).
#' landscapeR allows to tweak or create landscapes while retaining a high degree of control on its features,
#' without the hassle of specifying each location attribute. In this it differs from other tools
#' which generate null or neutral landscape in a theoretical space. The basic algorithm currently
#' implemented uses a simple agent style/cellular automata growth model, with no rules
#' (apart from areas of exclusion). Outputs are raster dataset exportable to any common GIS format.
