Arguments

landscape

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

Details

PLADJ = (\frac{g_{ij}} {∑ \limits_{k = 1}^{m} g_{ik}}) * 100

where g_{ii} is the number of adjacencies between cells of class i and g_{ik} is the number of adjacencies between cells of class i and k.

PLADJ is an 'Aggregation metric'. It calculates the frequency how often patches of different classes i (focal class) and k are next to each other, and following is a measure of class aggregation. The adjacencies are counted using the double-count method.

Units

Percent

Ranges

0 <= PLADJ <= 100

Behaviour

Equals PLADJ = 0 if class i is maximal disaggregated, i.e. every cell is a different patch. Equals PLADJ = 100 when the only one patch is present.

Value

tibble
