NAMEr.li.cwed - Calculates contrast weighted edge density index on a raster map
KEYWORDSraster, landscape structure analysis, patch index
SYNOPSISr.li.cwed r.li.cwed help r.li.cwed map=name conf=string path=string output=name [--overwrite] [--verbose] [--quiet] Flags: --overwrite Allow output files to overwrite existing files --verbose Verbose module output --quiet Quiet module output Parameters: map=name Name of input raster map conf=string Configuration file path=string Input file that contains the weight to calculate the index output=name Name for output raster map
DESCRIPTIONr.li.cwed (contrast weighted edge density) calculates the edge density between patch types specified: with: k: attribute m: number of non-null attributes in the sampling area eik: total length of edge in landscape between patch types i and k dik: dissimilarity (edge contrast weight) between patch types i and k Area: total landscape area The input file have a row for each couple of patch type that we want to consider in the calculation. Each row must to have this syntax: patchType1,patchType2,dissimilarityBetweenPatchType1andPatchType2
EXAMPLESTo calculate mean pixel attribute index on map my_map, using my_conf configuration file and saving results in my_out file run: r.li.cwed map=my_map conf=my_conf path=my_file output=my_out Example of input file: 12,16,0.65 44,123,0.32 56,12,0.54 23,66,0.99
NOTESDo not use absolute path names for output files. They are raster if moving window disposition was selected, otherwise they are in ~/.r.li/output folder. If the raster is full of null value it is considered to have 0 patch and CWED=0. If Area is 0 r.li.cwed returns -1. This is possible only if the map is masked. If you want to have null values instead run r.null setnull=-1 map=my_map after index calculation.
