moran.bounds {adespatial}R Documentation

Function to compute extreme values of Moran's I

Description

This function computes the upper and lower bounds of Moran's I for a given spatial weighting matrix (stored in a listw object). These values are obtained by the eigendecomposition of the spatial weighting matrix.

Usage

moran.bounds(listw)

Arguments

listw

an object of class listw

Value

A vector containing the maximum and minimum of Moran's I for a given spatial weighting matrix value returned
