In generating maps to meet prescribed accuracy standards from remote sensing data, validation is required. Cost considerations dictate that a sampling strategy for field checking be employed. The use of a sampling procedure to assess the accuracy of polygon classification, boundary line placement, and control point placement on land-use maps is described. Combining these measures into a single figure of merit with a confidence interval is suggested to foster acceptance in the user community.
