Falkland Islands inland waters (ponds and lakes)

The file describes the inland waters, as ponds and lakes, of the Falkland Islands. The file does not include all the features but it ensure that at least 75% of them have been recorded and will overlap with the official OS map (scale 1:50.000) of the Falklands.

Lineage The file was derived by performing a supervised classification on two Landsat 8 images taken in two different periods of time. June 2014 for West Falkland and August 2013 for East Falkland. By the time the work of retrieving inland waters was carried out these two images were the best available (as little cloud cover). The image analysis was conducted in QGIS using the semi-automatic classificationplugin. The task encountered several problems linked both to the plugin and to the quality of the images. Hence the results from the image analyses were checked and it was necessary to add features by manual digitisation using the OS maps in scale 1:50K as reference datasets. Hence the final version of the file is a mix of techniques and the representation of the inland water feature is not 100% but around 75%.
