       --quiet
           Quiet module output

       --ui
           Force launching GUI dialog

   Parameters:
       input=name [required]
           Name of input raster map

       output=name [required]
           Name for output raster map

DESCRIPTION

       r.li.mps  (mean  patch  size) calculates the mean size of the patches in the sampling area
       as:
       MPS = A / Npatch
       with:

           ·   A:sampling area size without null cells

           ·   Npatch: number of patches
       The unit of the mean size is hectare.

       This index is calculated using a 4 neighbour algorithm, diagonal cells  are  ignored  when
       tracing a patch.

NOTES

       Do  not  use  absolute  path  names for the config and output file/map parameters.  If the
       "moving window" method was selected in g.gui.rlisetup, then the output will  be  a  raster
       map,    otherwise    an    ASCII    file    will    be    generated    in    the    folder
       C:\Users\userxy\AppData\Roaming\GRASS7\r.li\output\            (MS-Windows)             or
       $HOME/.grass7/r.li/output/ (GNU/Linux).

       If the sample area contains only NULL value cells, r.li.mps returns 0 (zero).

EXAMPLES

       To  calculate  mean  path  size  index  on  map  my_map,  using my_conf configuration file
       (previously defined with g.gui.rlisetup) and saving results in my_out, run:
       r.li.mps input=my_map conf=my_conf output=my_out

       Forest map (Spearfish sample dataset) example:
       g.region raster=landcover.30m -p
       r.mapcalc "forests = if(landcover.30m >= 41 && landcover.30m <= 43,1,null())"
       r.li.mps input=forests conf=movwindow7 out=forests_mps_mov7
       r.univar forests_mps_mov7

       Forest map (North Carolina sample dataset) example:
       g.region raster=landclass96 -p
       r.mapcalc "forests = if(landclass96 == 5, 1, null() )"
       r.li.mps input=forests conf=movwindow7 out=forests_mps_mov7
       # verify
       r.univar forests_mps_mov7
       r.to.vect input=forests output=forests type=area
       d.mon wx0
       d.rast forests_mps_mov7
       d.vect forests type=boundary
