Computes Rao's diversity index (Rao, 1982) on images, typically for remote sensing uses. The index is computed on numeric vectors and can be implemented spatially on single-band images by moving windows, and temporally on single pixels accross multi-band images. The package provides helper function to compute the index on spatial or temporal raster stacks, serially or using cores in parallel. Rao, C. R. (1982).
