VecLI v1.0.0:基于真实地块的矢量景观指数计算与分析系统软件

VecLI version 1.0.0: Vector land-parcel-based landscape index calculation and analysis system

在过去的两个月里,我们正式完成了UrbanVCA的测试及优化。考虑到传统的景观指数(Landscape index)都是基于栅格数据计算的,这会导致无法使用矢量城市数据计算城市景观格局,而且矢量数据转化为栅格数据还存在精度损失的问题。在矢量数据空间计算景观指数,会遇到地块过度破碎、数据结构极其复杂的问题。过大的技术难度导致研究者和城市规划人员目前没有有效的工具基于真实地块尺度分析城市景观格局。

In the past two months, we have formally completed the testing and optimization of UrbanVCA.
To our knowledge, the traditional landscape index is calculated based on raster data, which results in the inability to calculate urban landscape patterns using vector data, and there is also a non-negligible loss of accuracy in converting vector data to raster data. Calculating landscape index in vector data space will encounter the problems of excessive fragmentation of land-parcels and extremely complex data structure.
The high technical difficulty leads to the fact that urban researchers and planners currently have no effective tools to analyze urban landscape patterns based at the actual land parcel scale.

在UrbanVCA正式发布的同时,我们UrbanComp团队实现了VecLI version 1.0.0,一个基于矢量数据格式计算和评价地块景观指数的系统。VecLI可以基于真实地块计算的景观指数,和分析不同城市之间的景观相似度。

In conjunction with the official release of UrbanVCA, our UrbanComp team has implemented VecLI version 1.0.0, a system for calculating and evaluating landscape indices of land parcels in vector-based data format.
VecLI can calculate landscape indices based on real plots and analyze the landscape similarity between different cities.


VecLI provides the basic vector data pre-processing module, while adding the editing function of vector data attribute fields.
With VecLI system, we have successfully carried out UrbanVCA-based simulation results analysis and similarity metrics.
We will integrate the streamlined version of VecLI module in UrbanVCA.


Considering the complexity of vector data structures, we have designed and enhanced the compatibility of data and algorithms within VecLI to accommodate parcel data with missing or incorrect spatial or attribute information.
The VecLI system also provides functions and interfaces for calculating the center of gravity coordinates, perimeter and area of a parcel for pre-processing of vector data to ensure the accuracy of calculating the landscape indices under any situations.
VecLI supports dynamic display and comparison of landscape degree values under different neighborhood radii during the calculation process, through which users can obtain the optimal neighborhood, realize the merging of adjacent parcels with similar functions and obtain the most reasonable landscape indices.
