Functional Description: ARPEnTAge is a software based on stochastic models (HMM2 and Markov Field) for analyzing spatio-temporal data-bases. ARPEnTAge is built on top of the CarottAge system to fully take into account the spatial dimension of input sequences. It takes as input an array of discrete data in which the columns contain the annual land-uses and the rows are regularly spaced locations of the studied landscape. It performs a Time-Space clustering of a landscape based on its time dynamic Land Uses (LUS). Displaying tools and the generation of Time-dominant shape files have also been defined.
