lsm_p_shape(landscape, directions)

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

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

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

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

## S3 method for class 'list'
lsm_p_shape(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

SHAPE = \frac{p_{ij}} {\min p_{ij}}

where p_{ij} is the perimeter in terms of cell surfaces and \min p_{ij} is the minimum perimeter of the patch in terms of cell surfaces.

SHAPE is a 'Shape metric'. It describes the ratio between the actual perimeter of the patch and the hypothetical minimum perimeter of the patch. The minimum perimeter equals the perimeter if the patch would be maximally compact.

Units

None

Range

SHAPE >= 1

Behaviour

Equals SHAPE = 1 for a squared patch and increases, without limit, as the patch shape becomes more complex.

Value

tibble
