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

*SHEI = \frac{- ∑ \limits_{i = 1} ^ {m} (P_{i} * \ln P_{i})} {\ln m}*

where *P_{i}* is the proportion of class i and *m* is the
number of classes.

SHEI is a 'Diversity metric'. It is the ratio between the actual Shannon's diversity index and and the theoretical maximum of the Shannon diversity index. It can be understood as a measure of dominance.

None

0 <= SHEI < 1

Equals SHEI = 0 when only one patch present and equals SHEI = 1 when the proportion of classes is completely equally distributed
