DESCRIPTION

r.object.spatialautocor calculates global spatial autocorrelation of the raster objects in the object_map based on the values in the variable_map. The user can choose between Moran's I or Geary's G indicator using the method parameter.

At this stage, neighborhood is simply defined by an adjancy matrix. The user can choose whether to also accept diagonal neighborhood by setting the -d flag.

NOTES

The module depends on the addon r.neighborhoodmatrix which needs to be installed.

EXAMPLE

Calculate the spatial autocorrelation of altitude in the elevation map using individual patches in the landclass96 (North Carolina sample dataset) as objects:

 
g.region raster=elevation
r.clump landclass96 output=objects
r.object.spatialautocor ob=objects var=elevation method=moran
r.object.spatialautocor ob=objects var=elevation method=geary
