Boltzmann entropy of a landscape gradient

Description

Calculates the Boltzmann entropy of a landscape gradient

Usage

get_boltzmann(
  x,
  method = "aggregation",
  na_adjust = TRUE,
  base = "log10",
  relative = FALSE
)

## Default S3 method:
get_boltzmann(
  x,
  method = "aggregation",
  na_adjust = TRUE,
  base = "log10",
  relative = FALSE
)

## S3 method for class 'matrix'
get_boltzmann(
  x,
  method = "aggregation",
  na_adjust = TRUE,
  base = "log10",
  relative = FALSE
)

## S3 method for class 'array'
get_boltzmann(
  x,
  method = "aggregation",
  na_adjust = TRUE,
  base = "log10",
  relative = FALSE
)

## S3 method for class 'RasterLayer'
get_boltzmann(
  x,
  method = "aggregation",
  na_adjust = TRUE,
  base = "log10",
  relative = FALSE
)

## S3 method for class 'RasterStack'
get_boltzmann(
  x,
  method = "aggregation",
  na_adjust = TRUE,
  base = "log10",
  relative = FALSE
)

## S3 method for class 'RasterBrick'
get_boltzmann(
  x,
  method = "aggregation",
  na_adjust = FALSE,
  base = "log10",
  relative = FALSE
)

## S3 method for class 'stars'
get_boltzmann(
  x,
  method = "aggregation",
  na_adjust = TRUE,
  base = "log10",
  relative = FALSE
)

Arguments

x

stars, RasterLayer, RasterStack, RasterBrick, matrix, or array.

method

A method used. Either "hierarchy" for the hierarchy-based method (Gao et al., 2017) or "aggregation" (default) for the aggregation-based method (Gao et al., 2019).

na_adjust

Should the output value be adjusted to the proportion of not missing cells? Either TRUE (default) or FALSE

base

A logarithm base ("log", "log2" or "log10").

relative

Should a relative or absolute entopy be calculated? TRUE or FALSE (default).

Details

The method for computing the Boltzmann entropy of a landscape gradient works on integer values that are either positive or equals to zero. This function automatically rounds values to the nearest integer value (rounding halfway cases away from zero) and negative values are shifted to positive values.

Value

a numeric vector

lg = matrix(new_c, nrow = 3, ncol = 8, byrow = TRUE)
get_boltzmann(lg, relative = FALSE, method = "hierarchy", base = "log10")
