Arguments

landscape

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

Details

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.

Units

None

Range

0 <= SHEI < 1

Behaviour

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

Value

tibble
