A Google Earth Engine App developed to delineate water bodies around the globe from 1984 until present and to provide 16 day estimates of surface area of water bodies as well as shapefiles to the user.
The app uses a novel framework to filters only those images that cloud is on top of the water body and allows users to choose from a list of spectral water indices to map water bodies. The app also allows users to select the choice of threshold (i.e., a fixed zero threshold or dynamic threshold to separate water form non-water background).
