Assessing yearly transition probability matrix for land use / land cover dynamics

  title={Assessing yearly transition probability matrix for land use / land cover dynamics},
  author={Jean-François Mas and Ernesto Vega},
In order to generate land cover projections and model land use and cover changes (LUCC), probability-based transition matrices are obtained through the overlaying of two maps of two different dates. However, the observation interval may differ because maps are not available every year or at a constant time interval and a matricial algorithm is commonly used to adjust the matrix. However, although the obtained yearly matrix is mathematically correct, it does not necessary represent adequately…
