Advanced Webinar: Accuracy Assessment of a Land Cover Classification

13 & 20 February 2018

Organisation: National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

Course Overview: In last year's ARSET Advanced Webinar: Land Cover Classification with Satellite Imagery, attendees learned the basic steps to create a supervised land cover classification. The next step to using land cover classifications is being able to evaluate the performance of a land cover map using accuracy assessments. This training will equip attendees to conduct an accuracy assessment on a land cover map and identify which classes might be misrepresented. By the end of this training, attendees will be able to conduct an accuracy assessment on a land cover map, understand how to create and use reference data, become familiar with sample designs for accuracy assessment, and develop and interpret an error matrix and a Kappa statistic.

The course will consist of two, 2 hour sessions. Sessions will be held on Tuesdays, on 13 and 20 February 2018, at 11:00-13:00 or 23:00-01:00 EST (UTC-5). The session is broadcast twice per day to allow for international participation.
