Abstract

This research prosecutes topographic attributes on forest acreage ratio (F) decrease by human population interactions (N), from the none to full coverage in grid cells. Tanaka and Nishii [9] verified that altitude as well as the slope steepness, i.e., topographic attributes, indicate strong influence to the deforestation in cells 0 < F < 1. Two new agenda were investigated in this research: zero-one inflated distribution of forest acreage, and effect of neighbor-cells. As for the former one, a classification problem of three forest coverage domains with F = 0, F = 1 and 0 < F < 1 is discussed. Then, statistical spatial models, as to the latter, are applied to the domain with 0 < F < 1, which take neighbor cell effects into account. This means that the methodology can analyze all terrestrial fields including deserts and climax forests.
