and validation: the validity and accuracy of the link between social science and land units and pixels, (3) spatial-temporal mismatch: matching spatial-temporal resolution of sensor systems with the resolutions of the social or biophysical data. Other issues addressed in this paper include classification and the use of ancillary data, spatial autocorrelation, and accuracy assessment of land change models.
