Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC): a suite available on Dinamica-EGO platform

Brief description

The Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) evaluates map similarity considering a reference binary pattern. ROC compares the amount of true positive and false positive cells through an incremental binary classification (Mas et al. 2013a). ROC is commonly used in GIS to evaluate spatial predictions versus observed data. An ROC suite developed by Mas et al (2013) is available on Dinamica-EGO. There are some study cases that apply ROC to evaluate binary predictions through a probability or suitability map using a suite of functors and submodels on Dinamica-EGO.
