In this study we analyse the migration rates along the Kapuas River, West Kalimantan. The migration rates are analysed by digitizing sets of Landsat images. Cloud detection and cloud shadow detection is used to mask the images, then they are combined to obtain water bodies. The difference between images from different years between 1973 and 2013 is used to obtain migration rates. A stream reconaissance was performed along the River to validate the results. The results of the stream reconaissance show good agreement with the Landsat based erosion rates.
