"Accuracy assessment of maps derived from remotely sensed data has continued to grow since the first edition of this groundbreaking book. As a result, the much-anticipated new edition is significantly expanded and enhanced to reflect growth in the field. It features three new chapters, including fuzzy accuracy assessment, positional accuracy, and a case study related to mapping land cover and land use in the Florida panhandle." "The authors provide a complete presentation of how to assess the positional accuracy of a map along with a discussion of the impact of positional accuracy on thematic accuracy. They also include a more thorough discussion of the special sampling issues that must be considered to assess change effectively."--Jacket.
