lsm_c_circle_mn(landscape, directions)

## S3 method for class 'RasterLayer'
lsm_c_circle_mn(landscape, directions = 8)

## S3 method for class 'RasterStack'
lsm_c_circle_mn(landscape, directions = 8)

## S3 method for class 'RasterBrick'
lsm_c_circle_mn(landscape, directions = 8)

## S3 method for class 'stars'
lsm_c_circle_mn(landscape, directions = 8)

## S3 method for class 'list'
lsm_c_circle_mn(landscape, directions = 8)

Arguments

landscape

Raster* Layer, Stack, Brick or a list of rasterLayers.

directions

The number of directions in which patches should be connected: 4 (rook's case) or 8 (queen's case).

Details

CIRCLE_{MN} = mean(CIRCLE[patch_{ij}])

where CIRCLE[patch_{ij}] is the related circumscribing circle of each patch.

CIRCLE_MN is a 'Shape metric' and summarises each class as the mean of the related circumscribing circle of all patches belonging to class i. CIRCLE describes the ratio between the patch area and the smallest circumscribing circle of the patch and characterises the compactness of the patch.

Units

None

Range

CIRCLE_MN > 0

Behaviour

Approaches CIRCLE_MN = 0 if the related circumscribing circle of all patches is small. Increases, without limit, as the related circumscribing circles increase.

Value

tibble
