Measures of Uncertainty

Prime: Michael Goodchild , Kate Beard
Research Assistant: Ashton Shortridge


Objectives
    Develop and evaluate measures of uncertainty as well as measures of uncertainty reduction

Schedule for Project
    Months 1-18:   Research the procedures and protocols that will be needed to assess uncertainties in NIMA products,
        and to test them at realistic scales
    Months 9-12:   Develop measures of uncertainty reduction based on metadata elements
    Months 9-24:   Research and implement measures of uncertainty as functions of metadata
    Months 12-24: Investigate tradeoffs of computing versus storing measures of uncertainty
    Months 12-30: Develop and implement methods for measurement of the spatial structure of uncertainty, and apply
        them to real data sets in the GII
