LandMetrics calculates a number of landscape measures used as indicators of fragmentation and/or connectivity of land cover or habitat classes in the selected study area. In particular, the following FRAGSTATS measures are calculated: - percentage of landscape (PLAND); - patch density (PD); - shape index distribution (SHAPE); - total class area (CA); - and Mean patch size (MPS); - effective mesh size (MESH); - area-weighted mean patch fractal dimension (AWMPFD). The input to the landscape indicators estimation approach is comprised of land cover (LC) or habitat maps and the output is a raster file for each calculated landscape measure and a file containing the values of the measures for each LC or habitat object.
