Arguments

landscape

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

verbose

Print warning message if not sufficient patches are present

Details

IJI = \frac{- ∑ \limits_{i = 1}^{m} ∑ \limits_{k = i + 1}^{m} \Bigg[ \Bigg( \frac{e_{ik}}{E} \Bigg) ln \Bigg( \frac{e_{ik}}{E} \Bigg) \Bigg]}{ln(0.5[m(m - 1)])} * 100

where e_{ik} are the unique adjacencies of all classes (lower/upper triangle of the adjacency table - without the diagonal), E is the total length of edges in the landscape and m is the number of classes.

IJI is an 'Aggregation metric'. It is a so called "salt and pepper" metric and describes the intermixing of classes (i.e. without considering like adjacencies - the diagonal of the adjacency table). The number of classes to calculate IJI must be >= than 3.

Units

Percent

Range

0 < IJI <= 100

Behaviour

Approaches 0 if a class is only adjacent to a single other class and equals 100 when a class is equally adjacent to all other classes.

Value

tibble
