ACCURACY ASSESSMENT OF MAPS OF FOREST CONDITION Statistical Design and Methodological Considerations

  title={ACCURACY ASSESSMENT OF MAPS OF FOREST CONDITION Statistical Design and Methodological Considerations},
  author={Raymond Czaplewski},
No thematic map is perfect. Some pixels or polygons are not accurately classified, no matter how well the map is crafted. Therefore, thematic maps need metadata that sufficiently characterize the nature and degree of these imperfections. To decision-makers, an accuracy assessment helps judge the risks of using imperfect geospatial data. To analysts, an accuracy assessment helps describe the reliability of the map for geospatial analyses and modeling, and the distribution of different types of… CONTINUE READING
