NAME

d.correlate - Prints a graph of the correlation between raster maps (in pairs).

KEYWORDS

display, correlation, scatterplot

SYNOPSIS

d.correlate
d.correlate help
d.correlate [-t] layer1=string layer2=string [layer3=string] [layer4=string] [--verbose] [--quiet]

Flags:

-t
Draw a trend line and calculate linear regression formula
--verbose
Verbose module output
--quiet
Quiet module output

Parameters:

layer1=string
raster input map
layer2=string
raster input map
layer3=string
raster input map
layer4=string
raster input map

DESCRIPTION

d.correlate is a shell (sh(1)) script that graphically displays the results of an r.stats run on two raster map layers. This shell script is useful for highlighting the correlation (or lack of it) among data layers (scattergram).

The results are displayed in the active display frame on the user's graphics monitor. d.correlate erases the active frame before displaying results.

The layern parameters supply the names of two to four existing raster map layers to be included in the correlation.

NOTES

This is a shell script that uses r.stats and the UNIX awk command to calculate the correlation among data layers, and uses d.text and d.graph to display the results.

If three or four map layers are specified, the correlation among each combination of two data layers is displayed.

EXAMPLE


Compare LANDSAT-7 bands 2 and 3 in the North Carolina sample dataset, and over-plot a trend line:
  g.region rast=lsat7_2002_20
  d.correlate -t layer1=lsat7_2002_20 layer2=lsat7_2002_30 --verbose
