Land Cover Final Report
The Southwest Regional Gap Analysis Project (SWReGAP) was the first formal GAP project designed at a regional, multi-state scale. This report presents an overview of the methodologies used to create the regional land cover dataset and highlights issues associated with achieving this collaborative product through a regionally coordinated process.
White Paper: A Matrix-Based Approach to Fuzzy Set Accuracy Assessment
We present an innovative approach to fuzzy set map accuracy assessment that uses a systematic framework based on ecological criteria. A primary objective is to incorporate greater objectivity in the error evaluation process, thus allowing multiple map experts to conduct fuzzy accuracy assessments for multiple maps in a standardized fashion.
