Image Classification, Accuracy Measures, Category-level, Map-level, Comparison.
This work investigated the consistency of both the category-level and the map-level accuracy measures for different scenarios and features using Support Vector Machine. It was verified that the classification scenario and the features adopted have not influenced the accuracy measure consistency and all accuracy measures are highly positively correlated.
