Calculates some characteristics of the polygons from a polygon dataset
Inputs:
Outputs:
Notes:
Fractal Dimension of the polygon boundaries is calculated using the Box Counting method (1)
Calculating the Fractal Dimension and Polygon Depth is time consuming. If you don't need these characteristics, uncheck the options for faster processing.
