Visualisation of Uncertainty in a Geodemographic Classifier

Slingsby, A., Tate, N. & Fisher, P. (2014). Visualisation of Uncertainty in a Geodemographic Classifier. Paper presented at the GIScience 2014: Uncertainty Workshop, 23 September 2014, Vienna.


We explore some ideas around quantifying and visualising classification uncertainty within a geodemographic classifier. We demonstrate spatially-constrained small-multiples to show geographical variation, their combination with a Gastner population cartogram projection to normalise with respect to population, explore a fuzziness parameter when producing fuzzy-sets, and look at implications of taking into account this uncertainty when profiling population, finding that this can have significant effects that are worth investigating further.
