Abstract

In the following sections, some experiments using vegetation transects are described in order to study the effect of generalization on the attribute accuracy of a small-scale vegetation map. The analysis is geared towards the effects of model-oriented generalization rather than cartographic generalization. The effects of model-oriented generalization have been neglected in much of the literature (Chapter 1) and very few studies have been published concerning the implications on results of using generalized data. The discussion that follows encompasses generalization at the spatial resolution and classification levels. -from Author
