lsm_l_gyrate_cv: GYRATE_CV (landscape level) In r-spatialecology/landscapemetrics: Landscape Metrics for Categorical Map Patterns

Description

Coefficient of variation radius of gyration (Area and edge metric)

Usage

 ``` 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16``` ```lsm_l_gyrate_cv(landscape, directions) ## S3 method for class 'RasterLayer' lsm_l_gyrate_cv(landscape, directions = 8) ## S3 method for class 'RasterStack' lsm_l_gyrate_cv(landscape, directions = 8) ## S3 method for class 'RasterBrick' lsm_l_gyrate_cv(landscape, directions = 8) ## S3 method for class 'stars' lsm_l_gyrate_cv(landscape, directions = 8) ## S3 method for class 'list' lsm_l_gyrate_cv(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

GYRATE_{CV} = cv(GYRATE[patch_{ij}])

where GYRATE[patch_{ij}] equals the radius of gyration of each patch.

GYRATE_CV is an 'Area and edge metric'. The metric summarises the landscape as the Coefficient of variation of the radius of gyration of all patches in the landscape. GYRATE measures the distance from each cell to the patch centroid and is based on cell center-to-cell center distances. The metrics characterises both the patch area and compactness. The Coefficient of variation is scaled to the mean and comparable among different landscapes.

Meters

GYRATE_CV >= 0

Behaviour

Equals GYRATE_CV = 0 if the radius of gyration is identical for all patches. Increases, without limit, as the variation of the radius of gyration increases.
