The Map Comparison Kit (MCK) is a software tool for the comparison of raster maps. The program allows users to obtain a good understanding of the differences between pairs of maps.
To this end the tool includes a range of algorithms for the comparison of raster maps. It includes 'classical' methods such as Kappa and Percentage-of-agreement as well as some 'state of the art' methods that were more recently developed.
-the overall extent of the differences
-the spatial distribution of the differences
-the nature of the differences
-the measurement scale of the maps (nominal, ordinal, interval or ratio scale)
