The use of photogrammetry based on UAVs allows to survey long distances of riverbanks with a resolution capable of identifying detailed bank erosion features and quantifying retreat rates with an accuracy of centimetres. The identification of these features would be missed in slower and more expensive GPS profiling. Moreover, moving terrestrial laser scanning would require significant greater times and costs for comparable results.
