Precision Agric https://doi.org/10.1007/s11119-018-9584-3 An optimisation‑based approach to generate interpretable within‑field zones 1 1 2 2 Patrice Loisel · Brigitte Charnomordic · Hazaël Jones · Bruno Tisseyre © Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature 2018 Abstract The paper proposes a numerical criterion to evaluate zoning quality for a given number of classes. The originality of the criterion is to simultaneously quantify how zones are heterogeneous on the whole field under study and how neighbouring zones are simi - lar. This approach allows comparison between maps either with different zones or differ - ent labels, which is of importance for zone delineation algorithms aiming at maximizing inter-zone variability. In addition, this study also proposes an optimisation procedure that yields interpretable within-field zones in which each zone is assigned a clear label. The zoning procedure involves contour delineation based on quantile values. The key point of the paper is to use the proposed numerical zoning quality criterion to guide the optimi- sation procedure showing the complementarity of both proposals in delineating relevant within-field zones. In order to demonstrate the relevancy of the criterion, the zoning pro - cedure and the implementation of both together, the method was tested on 50 theoretical fields with known variability
