Data Quality
The methodology used mainly relies on the use of Remote Sensing (RS) interpretation with only limited “ground truthing” due to access constraints. Open breakages and overflows might have been omitted or mis-classified as potential in some cases where satellite images were not available or the images may not have been very clear due to heavy cloud cover and dense vegetation cover.
