Dutilleul moving window bivariate raster correlation

A bivarate raster correlation using Dutilleul's modified t-test

This function provides a bivariate moving window correlation using the modified t-test to account for spatial autocorrelation. Point based subsampling is provided for computation tractability. The hexagon sampling is recommended as it it good at capturing spatial process that includes nonstationarity and anistropy.

Usage
raster.modified.ttest(
  x,
  y,
  x.idx = 1,
  y.idx = 1,
  d = "AUTO",
  sub.sample = FALSE,
  type = "hexagon",
  p = 0.1,
  size = NULL
)
Arguments
x

x raster for correlation, SpatialPixelsDataFrame or SpatialGridDataFrame object

y

y raster for correlation, SpatialPixelsDataFrame or SpatialGridDataFrame object

x.idx

Index for the column in the x raster object

y.idx

Index for the column in the y raster object

d

Distance for finding neighbors

sub.sample

Should a sub-sampling approach be employed (TRUE/FALSE)

type

If sub.sample = TRUE, what type of sample (random or hexagon)

p

If sub.sample = TRUE, what proportion of population should be sampled

size

Fixed sample size

Value

A SpatialPixelsDataFrame or SpatialPointsDataFrame with the following attributes:

  • corr Correlation

  • Fstat The F-statistic calculated as [degrees of freedom * unscaled F-statistic]

  • p.value p-value for the test

  • moran.x Moran's-I for x

  • moran.y Moran's-I for y
