lsm_l_sidi(landscape, directions)

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

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

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

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

## S3 method for class 'list'
lsm_l_sidi(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

SIDI = 1 - ∑ \limits_{i = 1}^{m} P_{i}^{2}

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

SIDI is a 'Diversity metric'. It is widely used in biodiversity and ecology. It is less sensitive to rare class types than lsm_l_shdi. It can be interpreted as the probability that two randomly selected cells belong to the same class.

Units

None

Range

0 <= SIDI < 1

Behaviour

Equals SIDI = 0 when only one patch is present and approaches SIDI < 1 when the number of class types increases while the proportions are equally distributed

Value

tibble
