DESCRIPTION

       r.statistics  is  a  tool to analyse exploratory statistics of a categorical "cover layer"
       according to how it intersects with objects in a "base  layer".   A  variety  of  standard
       statistical  measures  are possible (called "zonal statistics" in some GIS).  All cells in
       the base layer are considered one object for the analysis.   For  some  applications,  one
       will  first  want  to prepare the input data so that all areas of contiguous cell category
       values in the base layer are uniquely identified, which can be done with r.clump.
       The available methods are the following:

           ·   average deviation

           ·   average

           ·   diversity

           ·   kurtosis

           ·   maximum

           ·   median

           ·   minimum

           ·   mode

           ·   skewness

           ·   standard deviation

           ·   sum

           ·   variance
       The calculations will be performed on each area of data of the  cover  layers  which  fall
       within each unique value, or category, of the base layer.

       Setting  the  -c flag the category labels of the covering raster layer will be used.  This
       is nice to avoid the GRASS limitation to integer in raster  maps  because  using  category
       values floating point numbers can be stored.

       All  calculations  create  an output layer.  The output layer is a reclassified version of
       the base layer with identical category values, but modified category labels - the  results
       of the calculations are stored in the category labels of the output layer.

NOTES

       For  floating-point  cover  map  support, see the alternative r.stats.zonal.  For quantile
       calculations  with  support  for  floating-point   cover   maps,   see   the   alternative
       r.stats.quantile.

EXAMPLES

       Calculation of average elevation of each field in the Spearfish region:
       r.statistics base=fields cover=elevation.dem out=elevstats method=average
       r.category elevstats
       r.mapcalc "fieldelev = @elevstats"
       r.univar fieldelev
