Generalized 3D fragmentation index derived from lidar point clouds

Open Geospatial Data, Software and Standards, Vol. 2, No. 1. (20 April 2017),


[Background] Point clouds with increased point densities create new opportunities for analyzing landscape structure in 3D space. Taking advantage of these dense point clouds we have extended a 2D forest fragmentation index developed for regional scale analyses into a 3D index for analyzing vegetation structure at a much finer scale. [Methods] Based on the presence or absence of points in a 3D raster (voxel model) the 3D fragmentation index is used to evaluate the configuration of a cell’s 3D neighborhood resulting in fragmentation classes ...

A national assessment of green infrastructure and change for the conterminous United States using morphological image processing

Landscape and Urban Planning, Vol. 94, No. 3-4. (15 March 2010), pp. 186-195,


Green infrastructure is a popular framework for conservation planning. The main elements of green infrastructure are hubs and links. Hubs tend to be large areas of ‘natural’ vegetation and links tend to be linear features (e.g., streams) that connect hubs. Within the United States, green infrastructure projects can be characterized as: (1) reliant on classical geographic information system (GIS) techniques (e.g., overlay, buffering) for mapping; (2), mainly implemented by states and local jurisdictions; and (3) static assessments that do not routinely ...


Landscape patterns from mathematical morphology on maps with contagion

Landscape Ecology In Landscape Ecology, Vol. 24, No. 5. (1 May 2009), pp. 699-709,


The perceived realism of simulated maps with contagion (spatial autocorrelation) has led to their use for comparing landscape pattern metrics and as habitat maps for modeling organism movement across landscapes. The objective of this study was to conduct a neutral model analysis of pattern metrics defined by morphological spatial pattern analysis (MSPA) on maps with contagion, with comparisons to phase transitions (abrupt changes) of patterns on simple random maps. Using MSPA, each focal class pixel on a neutral map was assigned ...


Impact of scale on morphological spatial pattern of forest

Landscape Ecology, Vol. 23, No. 9. (1 November 2008), pp. 1107-1117,


Assessing and monitoring landscape pattern structure from multi-scale land-cover maps can utilize morphological spatial pattern analysis (MSPA), only if various influences of scale are known and taken into account. This paper lays part of the foundation for applying MSPA analysis in landscape monitoring by quantifying scale effects on six classes of spatial patterns called: core, edge, perforation, branch, connector and islet. Four forest maps were selected with different forest composition and configuration. The sensitivity of MSPA to scale was studied by ...


Free and Open Source Software underpinning the European Forest Data Centre

Geophysical Research Abstracts In European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly 2013, Vol. 15 (2013), 12101,


Worldwide, governments are growingly focusing on free and open source software (FOSS) as a move toward transparency and the freedom to run, copy, study, change and improve the software. The European Commission (EC) is also supporting the development of FOSS [...]. In addition to the financial savings, FOSS contributes to scientific knowledge freedom in computational science (CS) and is increasingly rewarded in the science-policy interface within the emerging paradigm of open science. Since complex computational science applications may be affected by ...


Morphological segmentation of binary patterns

Pattern Recognition Letters, Vol. 30, No. 4. (01 March 2009), pp. 456-459,


This paper presents a method for segmenting binary patterns into seven mutually exclusive categories: core, islet, loop, bridge, perforation, edge, and branch. This is achieved by applying a series of morphological transformations such as erosions, geodesic dilations, reconstruction by dilation, anchored skeletonisation, etc. The proposed method depends on a single parameter only and can be used for characterising binary patterns with emphasis on connections between their parts as measured at varying analysis scales. This is illustrated on two examples related to ...


Mapping spatial patterns with morphological image processing

Landscape Ecology In Landscape Ecology, Vol. 22, No. 2. (1 February 2007), pp. 171-177,


We use morphological image processing for classifying spatial patterns at the pixel level on binary land-cover maps. Land-cover pattern is classified as ‘perforated,’ ‘edge,’ ‘patch,’ and ‘core’ with higher spatial precision and thematic accuracy compared to a previous approach based on image convolution, while retaining the capability to label these features at the pixel level for any scale of observation. The implementation of morphological image processing is explained and then demonstrated, with comparisons to results from image convolution, for a forest ...


Ranking European regions as providers of structural riparian corridors for conservation and management purposes

International Journal of Applied Earth Observation and Geoinformation, Vol. 21 (April 2013), pp. 477-483,


Riparian zones are of utmost importance in providing a wide range of ecological and societal services. Among these, their role in maintaining landscape connectivity through ecological corridors for animals and plants is of major interest from a conservation and management perspective. This paper describes a methodology to identify European regions as providers of structural riparian corridors, and to rank them with reference to conservation priority. Physical riparian connectors among core habitat patches are identified through a recent segmentation technique, the Morphological ...
