Land cover analysis for QGIS
As mentioned before i coded a new plugin for QGIS. Yesterday i decided to release a first version because i will start a new job on monday which will also include a lot of gis analysis and coding. I will further develop the plugin whenever i have time.
The Plugin is downloadable from the QGIS plugin hub. It is of course still marked as experimental, so please check for any bugs or missing things. You have to put the LecoS folder into your qgis plugin folder (~/.qgis/python/plugins/ on my machine)
You can find more information and a first use case about the plugin here:
I also included another little gui which allows the user to calculate diversity indexes (used for a heterogeneity analysis of the landscape). I also wanted to include more metrics (especially total edge length), however the calculation of the patch perimeter has driven me crazy (perimeter is the basis of a lot of more advanced metrics) over the last days and i couldn’t get it to work. Interested coders wanting to help can write me a comment or an email.
