AM-06 - Map algebra

Learning Objectives: 
  • Explain the categories of map algebra operations (i.e., local, focal, zonal, and global functions)
  • Explain why georegistration is a precondition to map algebra
  • Differentiate between map algebra and matrix algebra using real examples
  • Perform a map algebra calculation using command line, form-based, and flow charting user¬†interfaces
  • Describe a real modeling situation in which map algebra would be used (e.g., site selection, climate¬†classification, least-cost path)
  • Describe how map algebra performs mathematical functions on raster grids
