Short summary
This work demonstrates a new approach to obtain flood level trend information from surveillance footage with minimal prior information. A neural network trained to detect flood water is applied to video frames to create a qualitative flooding metric (namely, SOFI). The correlation between the real water trend and SOFI was found to be 75 % on average (based on six videos of flooding under various circumstances). SOFI could be used for flood model calibration, to increase model reliability.
