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

CA = sum(AREA[patch_{ij}])

where AREA[patch_{ij}] is the area of each patch in hectares.

TA is an 'Area and edge metric'. The total (class) area sums the area of all patches in the landscape. It is the area of the observation area.

Units

Hectares

Range

TA > 0

Behaviour

Approaches TA > 0 if the landscape is small and increases, without limit, as the size of the landscape increases.

Value
