GeoPAT2: Entropy calculations for local landscapes

Introduction GeoPAT 2 is an open-source software written in C and dedicated to pattern-based spatial and temporal analysis. Four main types of analysis available in GeoPAT 2 are (i) search, (ii) change detection, (iii) segmentation, and (iv) clustering. However, additional applications are also possible, including extracting information about spatial patterns. Global landscape diversity (based on Shannon entropy of land cover categories in a 9 by 9 km local window). It shows where only one land cover category dominates, and where there is a large number of lc categories.

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:
