The main goal of Multiland is to generate neutral landscapes made of several type of regions, with an exact control of the proportions occupied by each type of region. An important feature of the software is that it allows a control of the landscape fragmentation. It is intended to theoretical studies on the effect of landscape structure in applied sciences.
The outputs are two .txt files, containing the generated landscapes (file U.txt) and the corresponding fragmentation index (file fr.txt).
The landscape generation uses a Metropolis-Hastings algorithm, applied to some Gibbs measure. More details are given in the .pdf User Guide:
