DESCRIPTION

r.li.pielou calculates the "Pielou's diversity index" as:
r.li.pielou formula
with:

NOTES

Do not use absolute path names for the config and output file/map parameters. If the "moving window" method was selected in g.gui.rlisetup, then the output will be a raster map, otherwise an ASCII file will be generated in the folder C:\Users\userxy\AppData\Roaming\GRASS7\r.li\output\ (MS-Windows) or $HOME/.grass7/r.li/output/ (GNU/Linux).

If the input raster contains NULL value cells, r.li.pielou returns NULL for these cells.

EXAMPLES

To calculate Pielou's diversity index on map my_map, using my_conf configuration file (previously defined with g.gui.rlisetup) and saving results in my_out, run:
r.li.pielou input=my_map conf=my_conf output=my_out

Forest map (Spearfish sample dataset) example:

g.region raster=landcover.30m -p
r.mapcalc "forests = if(landcover.30m >= 41 && landcover.30m <= 43,1,null())"
r.li.pielou input=forests conf=movwindow7 out=forests_pielou_mov7
r.univar forests_pielou_mov7

Forest map (North Carolina sample dataset) example:

g.region raster=landclass96 -p
r.mapcalc "forests = if(landclass96 == 5, 1, null() )"
r.li.pielou input=forests conf=movwindow7 out=forests_pielou_mov7

# verify
r.univar forests_pielou_mov7
r.to.vect input=forests output=forests type=area
d.mon wx0
d.rast forests_pielou_mov7
d.vect forests type=boundary
