Description :
The aim of this paper is to introduce new measures of accuracy, namely the HOC (hits to observed change), MOC (misses to observed change) and FOC (false alarms to observed change) ratio indices, and discuss their potential relevance to the broad field of land-use/cover (LUC) change modeling. Firstly, the paper reviews existing validation parameters and presents a conceptual analysis of these parameters, including the 3 proposed new indices. And secondly, the paper discusses the potentials of these indices relative to the current important issues of LUC change modeling accuracy assessment.
