Landscape pattern quantities are affected by issues of scale, namely extent and resolution. The grain size (resolution) of fine-resolution geographic information system (GIS) data for two highly fragmented landscapes in USA and Italy were altered to evaluate the effect of grain size changes on landscape pattern metrics and cost-surface model outputs. Beginning with 3 m resolution data and resampling the data to 300 m resolution, we applied pattern metrics and cost-surface models (available in… CONTINUE READING
