Ground Control to Major Tom: the importance of field surveys in remotely sensed data analysis [article]

Ian Bolliger, Jonathan Kadish , Vaishaal Shankar
2017 arXiv   pre-print
We test the relative importance of both of the key limitations constraining the prevailing literature by applying this system to a data-rich environment.  ...  Our results provide clear guidance for the development of adaptive sampling strategies in data-sparse locations where satellite-based metrics may be integrated with standard survey data, while also suggesting  ...  First, ground truth data are often sparse in places where remote sensing tools are of unique value.  ...
