In this short paper we introduce a proper method to perform Korcak-analysis and obtain the correct Korcak-exponent on a set of patches, embedded into two-dimensions. Both artificial and natural data sets are used for the demonstration. The independence of the Korcak-exponent from the classical (Hausdorff) fractal dimension is also demonstrated.
