Abstract

Monitoring river systems with repeat aerial photography is a powerful tool although the temporal resolution of surveys is rarely performed at anything better than annual time-scales. In recent years, a variety of low-cost aerial platforms for acquiring aerial photography have emerged. While these economical options may facilitate more frequent repeat surveys, the accuracy of imagery needs further consideration...
