FRAGSTATS: Spatial Pattern Analysis Program for Categorical Maps
Entry ID: LANDECO_FRAGSTATS


Summary
Abstract: FRAGSTATS is a spatial pattern analysis program for categorical maps. The
landscape subject to analysis is user-defined and can represent any spatial
phenomenon. FRAGSTATS simply quantifies the areal extent and spatial
configuration of patches within a landscape; it is incumbent upon the user to
establish a sound basis for defining and scaling the landscape (including the
extent and grain of the landscape) and the scheme upon which patches are
classified and delineated. We strongly recommend that you read the FRAGSTATS
Background document on landscape pattern metrics (also available at this web
site). The output from FRAGSTATS is meaningful only if the landscape mosaic is
meaningful relative to the phenomenon under consideration.
