See our methodology section for more information.

    Reviewer comments

    I have changed B5, B6 and B7 to NO because on the initial website provided I have not identified data compliant with the requirements of this theme. Thus, I have reviewed the view service provided by Military Geographical Service (SGM). There have been other services indicated, such as this one, but it has not been working on the period of this reviewing process (app 1 month). We acknowledge and thank Chino Carranza for the valuable contribution to this theme, helping us with insightful answers.
