Since it is no more important me to know which mechanisms are responsible for the land-cover change of my study area of interest, so I would know whether I can compute transition probabilities among the defined states using time series land-cover data (available for 21 years span)? If so, is it better these transition values to be calculated for some certain short time intervals such as 5 or 7 years to make sense of some of the transition distribution metrics (SD, min. and max., etc.) that can be imported as important parameters into SyncroSim tool?
Thanks in advance for your help!
