Finding similar local landscapes

This is a third blog post in the series introducing GeoPAT 2 - a software for pattern-based spatial and temporal analysis. The previous two laid a foundation for pattern-based spatial analysis by explaining the three core ideas - a motifel, signature, and similarity metric. Now, I will apply these ideas to real-life problems. The first one is finding local landscapes with similar patterns. Introduction Nowadays, convenient search engines (such as Google or DuckDuckGo) are essential tools in everyday life.

Pattern-based Spatial Analysis - core ideas

This is a second blog post in the series introducing GeoPAT 2 - a software for pattern-based spatial and temporal analysis. The first one focused on providing a background of this open-source software. Here, I will explain the three core ideas behind the pattern-based spatial analysis including what is a motifel, signature, and similarity metric. Motifel Most of the spatial raster analyses use single pixels as its main unit of analysis.
