Global Land-Cover Map Validation Experiences : Toward the Characterization of Quantitative Uncertainty

Growing public awareness about satellite remote sensing can be attributed to the success of global geoportals that facilitate capturing of space-borne imagery from any place on the earth. Use of geo-portals in land-cover mapping has made mapping an easy process.
