Effective mesh density (number of meshes per 1 000 km2) for NUTSX (combined NUTS 2 and 3) regions, 2009
The size of meshes is calculated as the Effective Mesh Size (meff), a geo-statistical measure, which converts the probability that randomly selected points in an area are connected into the size of an un-fragmented patch. Smaller mesh size means less landscape connectivity and higher landscape fragmentation, which is the inverse of connectivity. Effective mesh density (seff) is the reciprocal value of meff (seff = 1/meff)
