State-of-the-art space borne SAR sensors are capable of acquiring imagery with a geometric resolution of one meter while airborne SAR systems provide even finer ground sampling distance. In such data, individual objects in urban areas like bridges and buildings become visible in detail. However, the side-looking sensor principle leads to occlusion and layover effects that hamper interpretability. As a consequence, SAR data is often analysed in combination with complementary data from… CONTINUE READING
