Imaging, Space, 20041001, C-CAP Classification for Washington Coastal Zone, Late-Date: NOAA Coastal Services Center, Charleston SC.
This data contains both 1995-era and 2000-era information. An accuracy
assessment was completed for the 2000-era classification only because
the ground truth was collected in 2002 and 2003.
While the accuracy of a 1995-era classification is hard to determine based on 2000-era ground truth, the 1995-era classification is composed of approximately 95.5% of the final 2000-era classification. This is because only the areas of change between 1995 and 2000 were classified for the early-date classification. Then the classified early-date layer was overlaid onto the late-date classification. Therefore the accuracy assessment for the late-date classification is still a good estimate of the accuracy of the early-date classification.
According to accuracy assessment performed by Space Imaging, the overall accuracy is 86.1% and 85.0% Kappa. The accuracy results shown below are from a combined accuracy completed on both Oregon and Washington
