This is an archive of a learning webinar that took place Friday, June 7, 2013.

REDD+ Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) managers and policy makers often combine forest cover data from various remotely sensed sources to produce forest monitoring maps. However, it can be a challenge to keep track of accuracy estimates in these maps that have such diverse sources and conditions.

In this learning session, Dr. Pontus Olofsson, research assistant professor in the Department of Geography and Environment at Boston University, addresses the fundamental protocols required to produce scientifically rigorous and transparent estimates of accuracy and area. The set of good practice recommendations provides guidelines to assist both scientists and practitioners in the design and implementation of accuracy assessment and area estimation methods applied to land change assessments using remote sensing.

A Q+A session follows the presentation.
