Using volunteered geographic information (VGI) in design-based statistical inference for area estimation and accuracy assessment of land cover

Remote Sensing of Environment, Vol. 212 (June 2018), pp. 47-59,


[Highlights] [::] Use of VGI in design-based inference requires adhering to rigorous protocols. [::] Collecting VGI using a probability sample is best option for design-based inference. [::] Certainty stratum approach incorporates VGI to reduce standard errors. [::] Incorporating VGI in a model-assisted estimator is beneficial in limited situations. [::] VGI from non-probability sample requires difficult to verify assumptions. [Abstract] Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI) offers a potentially inexpensive source of reference data for estimating area and assessing map accuracy in the context of remote-sensing based land-cover monitoring. The quality ...


Slavery from Space: demonstrating the role for satellite remote sensing to inform evidence-based action related to UN SDG number 8

ISPRS Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (March 2018),


The most recent Global Slavery Index estimates that there are 40.3 million people enslaved globally. The UN’s Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development Goal number 8, section 8.7 specifically refers to the issue of forced labour: ending modern slavery and human trafficking, including child labour, in all forms by 2025. Although there is a global political commitment to ending slavery, one of the biggest barriers to doing so is having reliable and timely, spatially explicit and scalable data on slavery activity. The ...


Assessing the accuracy of land cover change with imperfect ground reference data

Remote Sensing of Environment, Vol. 114, No. 10. (19 October 2010), pp. 2271-2285,


The ground data used as a reference in the validation of land cover change products are often not an ideal gold standard but degraded by error. The effects of ground reference data error on the accuracy of land cover change detection and the accuracy of estimates of the extent of change were evaluated. Twelve data sets were simulated to allow the exploration of the impacts of a spectrum of ground data imperfections on the estimation of the producer's and user's accuracy ...

Meta-information Database (INRMM-MiD).
This database integrates a dedicated meta-information database in CiteULike (the CiteULike INRMM Group) with the meta-information available in Google Scholar, CrossRef and DataCite. The Altmetric database with Article-Level Metrics is also harvested. Part of the provided semantic content (machine-readable) is made even human-readable thanks to the DCMI Dublin Core viewer. Digital preservation of the meta-information indexed within the INRMM-MiD publication records is implemented thanks to the Internet Archive.
The library of INRMM related pubblications may be quickly accessed with the following links.

Please, be aware that the indexed meta-information entirely relies on voluntary work and constitutes a quite incomplete and not homogeneous work-in-progress.
INRMM-MiD was experimentally established by the Maieutike Research Initiative in 2008 and then improved with the help of several volunteers (with a major technical upgrade in 2011). This new integrated interface is operational since 2014.
