 Bias in Classification Accuracy Assessment   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The overall classification accuracy can be computed as the total number of correct class predictions (the sum of the diagonal cells) divided by the total number of cells.
Here is why: three crucial assumptions in classification accuracy assessment are: 1) that the reference data are truly representative of the entire classification (unlikely), 2) the reference data and classified image are perfectly co-registered (impossible), and 3) there is no error in the reference data (unlikely).
Because of the positional uncertainty inherent in rectified images, a common approach for reference data is to sample the coordinates of the center pixel of a 3 by 3 group of pixels belonging to the same class.

 What's the Difference Between Accuracy and Precision?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Because GPS manufacturers routinely refer to a GPS receiver's accuracy in technical specifications, it's important to understand what helps determine the accuracy level of a GPS receiver as well as the differences between accuracy and precision.
The known position often is referred to as the "true position." Accuracy compares different measuring devices to a true position, and hence to one another.
Accuracy and precision also can be determined in terms of the WGS 1984 geodetic reference system.

 Map Accuracy Standards
As applied to the USGS 7.5-minute quadrangle topographic map, the horizontal accuracy standard requires that the positions of 90 percent of all points tested must be accurate within 1/50th of an inch (0.05 centimeters) on the map.
Vertical accuracy, as applied to contour maps on all publication scales, shall be such that not more than 10 percent of the elevations tested shall be in error by more than one-half the contour interval.
The accuracy of any map may be tested by comparing the positions of points whose locations or elevations are shown upon it with corresponding positions as determined by surveys of a higher accuracy.

 Accuracy
The most straightforward method for evaluating concept accuracy in this setting is to compare (the normal form of) the update produced by the grammar with (the normal form of) the annotated update.
Since semantic analysis is the input for the dialogue manager, we have measured concept accuracy in terms of a simplified version of the update language.
Semantic accuracy is given in table 5 according to four different definitions.

 Article - Describing Compounder Accuracy
Suppose the accuracy of a compounder was described as ±5% or ±10%.
If the accuracy statement is intended to reflect typical performance, it represents the performance of across a large pool of compounders.
Thus verification that an accuracy statement is met should be based on a measurement method whose error is considerable less than the compounder accuracy or the estimate of compounder accuracy should be corrected to account for measurement error.

 WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ACCURACY AND PRECISION?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Accuracy is defined as, "The ability of a measurement to match the actual value of the quantity being measured".
The goal of any meteorological instrument is to have high accuracy (sensor matching reality as close as possible) and to also have a high precision (being able to consistently replicate results and to measure with as many significant digits as appropriately possible).
Meteorological instruments, including radar, need to be calibrated in order that they sustain high accuracy and high precision.

 Map Accuracy   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Answer: it is difficult to judge what accuracy means without understanding the particular map and its intended use; that is one reason why we spent the first 1/3 of the semester understanding map fundamentals.
Accuracy is how close a representation comes to the true value being represented and precision is the degree of reproducibility of a measurement; that is the maximum possible error of the measurement.
On a 1:24000 topo map up to 10 percent of well defined points can be greater than 1/30th of an inch away from where they should actually be on the map up to 10 percent of elevations can be more than 1/2 the contour interval away from where they should actually be on the map.

 Accuracy and Precision   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Perhaps the easiest way to illustrate the difference between accuracy and precision is to use the analogy of a marksman, to whom the "truth" represents the bullseye.
Accuracy relates to the quality of a result, and is distinguished from precision, which relates to the quality of the operation by which the result is obtained.

Location accuracy is also critical for imperfections in areas where additional inspections or preventative maintenance work are difficult or expensive, for example in subsea lines or at river crossings.
Often, to attain the necessary location accuracy, pigging vendors provide above ground marker (AGM) systems that detect the passage of the in-line tool, usually by detecting the a rapid change in magnetic field.

If you go outside of this temperature the scale may be off by a division (in the case of the Ohaus SC6010 <600 g x 0.1g> a division is 0.1 gram so that means it maybe off by +/-0.2 grams instead of the stated +/- 0.1 gram).

A spring balance does not retain its accuracy permanently, for no matter how carefully it is handled, the spring very gradually uncoils even though its limit of elasticity has not been exceeded.
For ordinary purposes the errors are so small that they are considered insignificant, but in chemical analysis it has been necessary to develop methods by which they can be further minimized.
