NAME

       r.li.patchnum   -  Calculates  patch  number  index  on  a raster map, using a 4 neighbour
       algorithm.

KEYWORDS

       raster, landscape structure analysis, patch index

SYNOPSIS

       r.li.patchnum
       r.li.patchnum --help
       r.li.patchnum input=name config=name  output=name   [--overwrite]   [--help]   [--verbose]
       [--quiet]  [--ui]

   Flags:
       --overwrite
           Allow output files to overwrite existing files

       --help
           Print usage summary

       --verbose
           Verbose module output

       --quiet
           Quiet module output

       --ui
           Force launching GUI dialog

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

       config=name [required]
           Configuration file

       output=name [required]
           Name for output raster map

DESCRIPTION

       r.li.patchnum calculates the "patch number index" as:
        f(sample_area)= Patch_Number

       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 values then it is considered to have zero patches.

EXAMPLES

       To  calculate  patch  number  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.patchnum input=my_map conf=my_conf out=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.patchnum input=forests conf=movwindow7 out=forests_patchnum_mov7
       r.univar forests_patchnum_mov7

       Forest map (North Carolina sample dataset) example:
       g.region raster=landclass96 -p
       r.mapcalc "forests = if(landclass96 == 5, 1, null() )"
       r.li.patchnum input=forests conf=movwindow7 out=forests_patchnum_mov7
       # verify
       r.univar forests_patchnum_mov7
       r.to.vect input=forests output=forests type=area
       d.mon wx0
       d.rast forests_patchnum_mov7
       d.vect forests type=boundary
