Table 4 Comparison of the biomass maps with the NBS field data by biomass classes

From: Mapping biomass with remote sensing: a comparison of methods for the case study of Uganda

  All plots Plots ≥ 2

  1. The comparison is performed using all map units with at least 1 field plot ("All plots", left column) and selecting only the map units with 2 or more field plots ("Plots ≥ 2", right column). N is the number of biomass classes with field plots identified in each map
