Abstract
  • In this paper "map complexity" refers to the inherent intricacy of a mapped geographic pattern. Map complexity and sample size are two variables shown to influence the accuracy of interpolated dasymetric maps. An automated experiment was designed to investigate the precise relationship among map complexity, sample size, and the accuracy of dasymetric maps interpolated using Thiessen polygons. The results of the experiment were evaluated through regression analysis. A positive curvilinear relationship between sample size and map accuracy, and an inverse linear relationship between map complexity and map accuracy were observed. Map complexity was the more important variable influencing map accuracy and interaction between the two independent variables was indicated. A logistic shaped curve is presented summarizing the theoretical relationship between sample size, map complexity, and dasymetric map accuracy.
