Person who carried out this activity:
Horizontal accuracy of the source imagery was verified to exceed the project specification of +/- 5 meters CE95 of position on the ground.Overall final thematic map deterministic accuracy is 90%and overall fuzzy accuracy is 91%, which exceeds the contract standard of 85%. Additionally, 13 of the 14 final individual class producer's and user's deterministic accuracies exceed the contract standard of 80%. The deterministic user's accuracy for emergent marsh is 76%.All of the individual class producer's and user's fuzzy accuracies exceed the contract standard of 80%. Detailed error matrices can be found in the thematic accuracy report.
Compliance with the accuracy standard for the imagery was ensured by the placement of photo-identifiable ground control check points.Compliance with the accuracy standard for the final map product was ensured by field checks and manual editing.
Eight photo-identified ground control check points were established for the purpose of assessing the accuracy of the final orthoimagery. These points were randomly distributed over the San Antonio Espiritu Santo Bay area.Two of the control points fell outside the project extent,and one additional point was discarded, as it was not associated with a well-defined feature. The five remaining points were used to calculate the accuracy of the orthoimagery.For the final map product Initial Map accuracy assessment was used as a tool to prioritize areas for further field examination and after field investigation to prioritize those areas where additional modeling or interpretation was needed. Error matrices showing both deterministic and fuzzy accuracies were compiled for the initial map. Based on the results compiled from the assessment, the team visit any classes exhibiting inaccuracy and addressed the classes through modeling, additional analysis or manual editing.
