Introduction In remote sensing accuracy assessment applications, the confidence interval is commonly used as a way to establish an appropriate sample size. However, confidence intervals are also informative when included in the accuracy assessment report. Many reports and papers give accuracy figures and leave out confidence intervals. In those cases where a confidence interval is constructed, the standard approach is to derive the interval through the use of a normal approximation of the… Expand

COMPARING BINOMIAL BOOTSTRAP AND BAYESIAN ESTIMATION METHODS IN ASSESSING THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN CLASSIFIED IMAGES AND GROUND TRUTH DATA.
The degree of agreement between classification and ground truth in remotely sensed data is often quantified with an error matrix and summarized using agreement measures such as Cohen's kappa. In theExpand
Precision for binary measurement methods and results under beta-binomial distributions
To handle typical problems from fields dealing with biological responses, this study develops a new statistical model and method for analysing the precision of binary measurement methods and resultsExpand
Tandem-width sequential confidence intervals for a Bernoulli proportion
Abstract We propose a two-stage sequential method for obtaining tandem-width confidence intervals for a Bernoulli proportion p. The term “tandem-width” refers to the fact that the half-width of theExpand
Harshness in image classification accuracy assessment
TLDR
A greater awareness of the problems encountered in accuracy assessment may help ensure that perceptions of classification accuracy are realistic and reduce unfair criticism of thematic maps derived from remote sensing. Expand

TLDR
This article develops computable expressions on the minimum coverage probability of random intervals, which allows for a bisection coverage tuning method for constructing confidence intervals for parameters of various types of data. Expand

TLDR
Results show that error can be modelled at an aggregate level using cumulative frequency curves and their confidence limits, and shows that management of simplification induced error is possible using simple tools well within the reach of GIS users. Expand
BINOMIAL AND POISSON CONFIDENCE INTERVALS AND ITS VARIANTS: A BIBLIOGRAPHY
The binomial and Poisson distributions are basis to many aspects of statistical data analysis. This bibliography attempts to provide a comprehensive listing of available literature on calculatingExpand
Optimal Stopping for Interval Estimation in Bernoulli Trials
TLDR
It is proved that, for a particular prior (beta density), the optimum stopping time is always bounded from above and below; it needs to first accumulate a sufficient amount of information before deciding whether or not to stop, and it will always terminate before some finite deterministic time.

Practical Implications of Design-Based Sampling Inference for Thematic Map Accuracy Assessment
TLDR
The conceptual basis of design-based inference is described, followed by discussion of practical implications of the framework, including the population to which the inferences apply and the role of probability sampling. Expand
Validation of active fire detection from moderate-resolution satellite sensors: the MODIS example in northern eurasia
TLDR
The procedures described are recommended for a consensus active fire validation protocol, but with the inclusion of multiplatform sensor configurations to complement the near-nadir angular sampling from single-platform observations such as MODIS and ASTER on Terra. Expand
