One of the most important questions that a user of a map produced from a geographic information system (GIS) can ask is" "How accurate is the map?' Line intersect sampling is used to estimate the length of cover class boundaries on a map that coincide with the true boundaries of the cover classes on the ground. A ratio of coincident boundary to total boundary is proposed as one measure of map accuracy. -Authors
