sabre: or how to compare two maps?

Creating or determination of regions is a useful way to describe the world. Regionalization does not only allow for a quicker understanding of spatial patterns but also can influence how regions are managed. Regions are created in various disciplines. We can delineate regions based on a single property (e.g. landform regions or climate regions) or several factors (e.g. ecoregions). There are also political regions divided by borders that are established through political or social agreements.

Moving beyond pattern-based analysis: Additional applications of GeoPAT 2

This is the sixth and the last blog post in the series introducing GeoPAT 2 - a software for pattern-based spatial and temporal analysis. In the previous one we presented the pattern-based spatial segmentation - a method for creating regions of homogenous patterns. Here, we will mention other pattern-based methods and show some examples of how you can use pieces of GeoPAT 2 in your own workflow. Introduction GeoPAT 2 gives its users a lot of freedom, having a large number of possible workflows:
