Electromagnetic methods still need to be improved and developed for faster surveying. In all cases, increasing the rate and the significance of measurements is very much dependent on the particular conditions in open fields, and most methods are subject to physical limits, as is the case with G.P.R. which is still rather slow in comparison with other methods. Finally, if we turn to some less common methods, like thermography, gravimetry or seismic, it is clear that their applicability must be considered only in very specific cases
