Airborne Synthetic Aperture Radar classified at a spatial resolution of 1m, using a statistically active contour (Snake).
Performance measures: Inundation correctly predicted = 90%, rmse elevation = 0.32 m
High water, F=73%
Comparison of model inundation extent with JERS-1 imagery
dark blue = areas inundated in both the JERS-1 image and the model prediction,
red and cyan = over- and under-prediction by model, respectively
black = uncertainty in the JERS-1 image.
