Physical habitat parameters will be extracted from detailed 3D models. Selected river reaches will be analysed using drone imagery for calculation river bathymetry model, reconstructing the channel bed structure, gravel bars, submerged bed substrate and identifying habitat patterns. From hydraulic modelling, we used flow velocity. For final class mapping, will be used a combination of velocity data, water depth, substrate grain size and morphology unit (pool, glide, run, riffle).
