This workshop concerns how to measure temporal change and predictive error for a variety of applications, in particular Land Change Science and GIS. We discuss how to avoid common blunders and to use enlightening techniques such as the Total Operating Characteristic and Difference Components. Participants range from students to senior scientists. The workshop focuses on concepts, not on specific software, thus participants do not need to use computers in the workshop. Participants are entitled to a 50% discount on a general or academic license of the GIS software TerrSet ( Professor Pontius has presented workshops in 17 countries (
