LAND AREA PREDICTION MODEL (LAPM) Accuracy Assessment

Abstract: 
This document shows the methodology used to assess the accuracy of the new Land Area Prediction Model (LAPM), as well as the results of the assessment. LAPM aims at predicting land-use areas within each fine-scale Homogenous Spatial Units (HSU). It has been evaluated its accuracy comparing its predictions with LPIS data aggregated to HSU level for France and the Netherlands
