The ability to see the ground surface in an urban environment is limited by access and the amount of natural ground exposure. This is typically less than 10% by area. The assessment of the probable ground structure and the behaviour of critical ground elements can be achieved by comparison with non-urban environments exhibiting similar landforms. This model can be verified by a detailed study of historic maps and a review of existing local subsurface information.
