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

`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). |

*LPI = \frac{\max (a_{ij})} {A} * 100*

where *max(a_{ij})* is the area of the patch in square meters and *A*
is the total landscape area in square meters.

The largest patch index is an 'Area and edge metric'. It is the percentage of the landscape covered by the largest patch in the landscape. It is a simple measure of dominance.

Percentage

0 < LPI <= 100

Approaches LPI = 0 when the largest patch is becoming small and equals LPI = 100 when only one patch is present
