The level of detail of the analysis will depend on the availablility of data:
- Very-high resolution satellite images and/or aerial photographs;
- Elevation data (derived from aerial photographs or very-high resolution satellite images; if not available, ASTER GDEM can be used);
- If available, vector layers from MAC database (SHAs, contamination, accidents, historical conflict data, etc.) and other layers such as road and stream network;
- Output of other tools are input in the analysis.
Vectors outlining candidate units' positions during the conflict.
This analysis aims at verifying and refining units' positions derived from military archives. It will allow MAC experts to infer the location of mine obstacles based on contextual information and expert knowledge.
Several datasets are used for reconstructing the historical conflict landscape that forms the context of ERW contamination, among which satellite images and aerial photographs.
