How to measure spatial diversity and segregation?

The raceland package implements a computational framework for a pattern-based, zoneless analysis and visualization of (ethno)racial topography. The main concept in this package is a racial landscape (RL). It consists of many large and small patches (racial enclaves) formed by adjacent raster grid …

How to calculate landscape metrics for local landscapes?

In the last few weeks, I was asked a similar question several times - how to calculate landscape metrics for local landscapes? In other words, how to divide the categorical input map into a number of smaller areas, and next calculate selected landscape metrics for each of the areas. Those areas have …
