WaterMasks integrates an unsupervised local thresholding approach to estimate water extent of an area relying on a single Sentinel-2 radiometrically corrected image. This module detects automatically thresholds on the Short-Wave Infrared (SWIR) band and on a Modified-Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (MNDVI), derived from radiometrically-corrected Sentinel-2 data. Then, it combines them in a meaningful way based on a knowledge base coming out of an iterative trial and error process. Classes of interest concern water and non-water areas. The inundation map generated by the WaterMask module can be used as input in the HydroMap one.
