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 the training, attendees will be able to:
Attendees that do not complete prerequisites may not be properly prepared for the pace during the training.
This training is primarily intended for local, regional, state, federal, and international organizations interested in assessing vegetation condition using satellite imagery. Professional organizations in the public and private sectors engaged in environmental management and monitoring will be given preference over organizations focused primarily on research.
