"Water-body segmentation is a high-relevance task inside satellite image analysis due to its relationship with environmental monitoring and assessment. Thereon, several authors have proposed different approaches which achieve a wide range of results depending on their datasets and settings. This study is a brief review of classical segmentation techniques in multispectral images using the Peruvian satellite PeruSAT-1 imagery. The areas of interest are medium-sized highland zones with water bodies around in Peruvian south. We aim to analyze classical segmentation methods to prevent future natural disasters, like alluviums or droughts, under low-cost data constraints. We consider accuracy, robustness, conditions, and visual effects in our analysis"
