I am a senior landscape ecologist with The Nature Conservancy's, Central Science. I attempt to bring vigor from diverse fields such as landscape ecology, spatial statistics, remote sensing and applied mathematics to answer practical conservation questions. I hold Affiliate Associate Professor status at University of Wyoming and have over 65 publications in peer-reviewed journals.

My research is focused on spatial statistics in ecological applications, species distribution modeling, climate change, landscape genetics, Bayesian statistics, Lidar and spectral remote sensing and gradient modeling. I have ridden horses for 35 years and was a member of the US Equestrian team. I have also played guitar in several swing and bluegrass bands

comment R -plot 12 images per plot or save 12 images per image file in R
Not sure what you mean. My example is just an x,y plot. You do realize that png is not a multipage device? If you want plot numerious rasters I would recommend a pdf device. After setting a graphic device and par() settings, you will also need to create a loop to plot each raster. Something like: for(i in 1:nlayer(RAD1998.all)) {plot(RAD1998.all[[i]])}

comment Negative Topographic Index Values
There should not be negative values in TWI/CTI. It could be how the programmer decided to deal with 0 slope values or the value associated with non-aspects, which are often -1.

comment R plot raster with real colors
You are using the raster() function which is only intended for single band rasters. If you use stack() or brick() then your three RGB bands will be in the resulting raster class object. You will still need plotRGB to display the composite image.

comment How to group individual groups of pixels into a single class
Agreed, however this is a limitation of the convex geometry algorithm employed by ESRI. Take a look at the Pateiro-López & Rodríguez-Casal (2009) Alpha Convex Hull method in this thread (gis.stackexchange.com/questions/1200/…). You can adjust the alpha parameter to better fit your data.
