[Numpy-discussion] Crosstabulation

Hi Friedrich:

For land-use a class would be for example forest, other would be orchard etc. 
For Slope gradient I would have values which <3 and between 3 and 7 etc. So, I 
will have 2 raster data with, let's say, 3 classes each: forest, orchards and 
built-up area and for slope gradient: 0-3, 3-15, 15-35. The cross-tabulation 
analysis should give me a table like:

            forest orchards built-up
0-3         10         20           15
3-15       5           10           20
15-35     5           15           15

where the numbers represents all the common cells, for example: 10 cells with 
forest correspond to 10 cells with 0-3 slope gradient interval and so on
(by cells I mean the pixel from a raster data)

The analysis is better illustrated here:

Thanks Robert, that clarifies a lot.

But still I don't understand how the crosstabulation shall work.  What
are the "classes"?
