`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). |

*CIRCLE_{SD} = sd(CIRCLE[patch_{ij}])*

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

CIRCLE_SD is a 'Shape metric' and summarises the landscape as the standard deviation of the related circumscribing circle of all patches in the landscape. CIRCLE describes the ratio between the patch area and the smallest circumscribing circle of the patch and characterises the compactness of the patch. The metric describes the differences among all patches of the landscape.

None

CIRCLE_SD >= 0

Equals CIRCLE_SD if the related circumscribing circle is identical for all patches. Increases, without limit, as the variation of related circumscribing circles increases.
