Patch Report

The PatchReport class describes the area distribution of connected patches on a landscape. It generates information describing patch size distributions for patch criteria that have not been defined as targets. Some questions you may have are: What is the patch size distribution of spruce or tolerant hardwood on my forest? or regeneration? or late seral stages? How much area do I have of spruce patches in compartment "NWC" greater than 500 ha in size? If you have already defined patches in your PIN file as targets, then you can use a "Multiple Target Report" as this report uses only the target table. If, on the other hand, you would like to report on patches of attributes from the block table that are not defined as targets, you will have to use the "Patch Report". With the Patch Report, you are only limited by the attributes you have in your block attribute table.
