"Consistency in land cover mapping: influence of fieldworkers, spatial scale and classification system" is part of Heidrun A. Ullerud's PhD. She is researching methods and quality in land cover mapping, with the aim of finding methods that enable effective, high quality mapping of nature. The paper is based on comparisons of parallell maps made by three different fieldworkers, with two different mapping systems. One of these systems were NiN.
