The main aim of this research was to develop a web-based, remote sensing data-driven, operational, and large-scale seasonal river morphology monitoring system for the Ayeyarwady river to support decision making.

The key contribution of this research stems from the application of well-proven remote sensing morphological monitoring method for the operational monitoring of 3382 km of the Ayeyarwady river and its tributaries encompassing the whole process of a stakeholder-centric co-development framework.

Leveraging long-term availability of Landsat satellite data, 30 years of historical maps (1988–2019) of erosion and accretion areas along with river channel were produced to support mapping of vulnerable hotspots. A user-centric simple web interface was developed to enable wide range of stakeholders to access and download the data including an option to estimate river channel width at a desired cross-section.
