r.li.patchdensity: Calculates patch density index on a raster map, using a 4 neighbour algorithm

NAME

r.li.patchdensity - Calculates patch density index on a raster map, using a 4 neighbour algorithm

KEYWORDS

raster, landscape structure analysis, patch index
SYNOPSIS
r.li.patchdensity r.li.patchdensity help r.li.patchdensity map=name conf=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 output=name Name for output raster map
DESCRIPTION
r.li.patchdensity is a patch index for r.li suite. It calculates the function: f(sample_area) = (Patch_Number/Area) * 1000000 that is 1000000 by number of patch for area unit. This index is calculated using a 4 neighbour algorithm.

EXAMPLES

To calculate patch density index on map my_map, using my_conf configuration file (previously defined with r.li.setup) and saving results in the raster map my_out, run: r.li.patchdensity map=my_map conf=my_conf out=my_out Example for Spearfish forest areas: g.region rast=landcover.30m -p # extract forested areas: r.category landcover.30m r.mapcalc "forests=if(landcover.30m >= 41 && landcover.30m <=43,1,null())" # patch density (7x7 moving window defined in r.li.setup): r.li.patchdensity forests conf=movwindow7 out=forests_p_dens7 d.rast.leg forests_p_dens7 r.to.vect forests out=forests feature=area d.vect forests type=boundary

NOTES

A map of NULL values is considered to have zero patches. If you want to have null values instead run r.null setnull=0 map=my_out after index calculation. If raster area is 0, r.li.patchdensity returns -1. This is only possible if the raster is masked.
