comparing model outputs

How much essential would it be to compare outputs from ecosystem models with other information such as field observation, remote sensing images or any other data? For broad scale analysis and long-term modeling, often times we might not have field observations. Some studies are found to only do qualitative interpretation of their model outputs. Do we need to base these studies on other studies to done at smaller spatial or temporal scales, and do upscaling?
