Hi Jean,

There are also many features (roads, villages, canals...) still to be 
traced in available Spot imagery 

For example, (but not only), in all the central branch of Indus valley, 
including Dera Ismail Khan, Kot Addu, etc...

(and Landsat can sometimes be used to complete linear features that 
extend beyond Spot coverage).

Best wishes,
