A workflow is introduced to automatically measure water stages based on image measurements using deep learning. So far, most camera gauges do not provide the needed robustness to achieve accurate water stage measurements because of changing environmental conditions. The novel, suggested approach is based on two CNNs (i.e. FCN and SegNet) to identify water in imagery. The image information is transformed into metric water level values intersecting the extracted water contour with a 3D model. The workflow allows for the densification of river monitoring networks based on low-cost camera gauges in various scenarios.

This collection is open access and publicly accessible.
