BackForward Variable: Land cover

Definition
Full name Land cover
Definition Processed from land surface imagery by assigning identified cluster(s) within a given area to specific classes of objects - Accuracy expressed as number of classes. Actually [ classes-1 ] is used, so that smaller figure corresponds to better performance, as usual.
Measuring Units Classes Uncertainty Units Classes-1
Horizontal Res Units m Vertical Res Units
Stability Units Classes-1 (Stability /decade)
