DESCRIPTION

r.stats.zonal is a tool to analyse exploratory statistics of a floating-point "cover layer" according to how it intersects with objects in a "base layer". A variety of standard statistical measures are possible (called "zonal statistics" in some GIS).

NOTES

r.stats.zonal is intended to be a partial replacement for r.statistics, with support for floating-point cover maps at the expense of not supporting quantiles. For this, see r.stats.quantile.

EXAMPLE

In this example, the raster polygon map zipcodes in the North Carolina sample dataset is used to calculate zonal raster statistics using the elevation raster map:
g.region raster=zipcodes -p

# pixel count in zipcode areas
r.stats.zonal base=zipcodes cover=elevation method=count output=zipcodes_elev_count
r.colors zipcodes_elev_count color=gyr -g

# average elevation in zipcode areas
r.stats.zonal base=zipcodes cover=elevation method=average output=zipcodes_elev_avg
r.colors zipcodes_elev_avg color=elevation -g
