The Map Comparison Kit
Comparing maps is an important issue in environmental research. There are many reasons to compare maps: (i) to detect temporal/spatial changes or hot-spots (ii) to compare different models, methodologies or scenario’s, (iii) to calibrate, validate land use models, (iv) to analyse model uncertainty and sensitivity, and (v) to assess map accuracy.This article addresses the quantification of map similarities and dissimilarities using the MAP COMPARISON KIT (MCK) software. Software and documentation are publicly available on the RIKS website, free of charge.
