lsm_l_msiei(landscape, directions)

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

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

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

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

## S3 method for class 'list'
lsm_l_msiei(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

MSIEi = \frac{- \ln ∑ \limits_{i = 1}^{m} P_{i}^{2}} {\ln m}

where P_{i} is the landscape area proportion of class i. MSIEI is a 'Diversity metric'.

Units

None

Range

0 <= MSIEI < 1

Behaviour

MSIEI = 0 when only one patch is present and approaches MSIEI = 1 as the proportional distribution of patches becomes more even

Value

tibble
