Automatic Segmentation of Water Bodies using RGB Data: A Physically Based Approach

Automatically segment water extent using a physically based model which integrates reflectance of the water surface with spectral and quantum interpretation of light. The algorithm was tested on 27 rivers and compared to manually-based delimitation, with a resulting robust segmentation procedure. Quantified errors were RMSE = 11.91 (m2) for surface area, RMSE = 12.25 (m) for perimeter, and RMSE in x: 52 (px), RMSE in y: 93 (px) for centroid location. Processing time was faster for automatic segmentation than manual delimitation, with a time reduction of 40% (case-by-case analysis) and 65% (using all case studies together in one run).
