Abstract

In a GIS an object is generally defined by two aspects, positional and thematic values. There, we can have error indicators to describe the positional accuracy, and we can have error indicators to describe thematic accuracy. However, we do not have a well developed theory to derive a combined uncertainty indicator for a GIS object. In this paper, we present a strategy for such a combined error model, the `S-BAND' uncertainty model. This model is based on a combined uncertainty indicator with both positional and thematic (PAT) aspects.
