This dataset provides confusion matrices of the land use dynamics for 7 regions of southern chile in a period of 20 years. The regions are: Maule, Biobio, Araucania, Los Rios, Los Lagos, Aysen and Magallanes. This dataset is based on the clasification of land uses by Benra et al., 2019 ( For the computation of the matrices the national vegetation cadaster and corresponding actualizations were used. The first five regions (Maule, Biobio, Araucania, Los Rios, Los Lagos) count with three points in time whereas the last two (Aysen, Magallanes) count with only two time steps. Accordingly, for the five first regions two confusion matrices are provided while for the last two one confusion matrix is provided. In the excel file each sheet corresponds to one region.
