For merging Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) with georeferen ced data, one usually uses processing software to orthorectify the SAR images in order to add them in a GIS. Nevertheless , thi projection involves an important alteration of the information of SAR images and are often specific to some parti cular SAR sources. Moreover, the transformation of radarcoding data from a GIS into the radar geometry allows the use o f different information sources to improve the analysis of SAR images and the…

The generation of SAR layover and shadow maps from digital elevation models
As almost fully automated techniques as well as expert systems obtain more and more importance in the geocoding of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images, the solution to the problem of the
Rectification of terrain induced distortions in radar imagery
This paper describes a technique to generate geocoded synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery corrected for terrain induced geometric distortions. This algorithm transforms the raw slant range image,
Development of a SAR data acquisition planning tool (SARPLAN) based on image simulation
This paper proposes the development of a data acquisition planning tool based on image simulation that would query reception facilities to determine the basic imaging parameters of satellite passes over his/her geographical area of interest and generate simulated data sets for each available viewing geometry.

A novel approach to polarimetric image simulation for synthetic aperture radar (SAR) observation over comprehensive terrain scenes is developed based on mapping and projection principles. It
MOCEM - An 'all in one' tool to simulate SAR image
This software uses an original EM formulation based on the object geometry analysis to build SAR images in a very short computation time, and offers an attractive way to explain capabilities and limits of SAR images to the scientific community which is more familiar with optical and IR images than radar.
Radar interferometry and its application to changes in the Earth's surface
Geophysical applications of radar interferometry to measure changes in the Earth's surface have exploded in the early 1990s. This new geodetic technique calculates the interference pattern caused by
Unsupervised classification using polarimetric decomposition and the complex Wishart classifier
The authors observed that the class centers in the entropy-alpha plane are shifted by each iteration, and are useful for class identification by the scattering mechanism associated with each zone.
Polarimetric SAR interferometry
The authors solve the coherence optimization problem involving maximization of interferometric coherence and formulate a new coherent decomposition for polarimetric SAR interferometry that allows the separation of the effective phase centers of different scattering mechanisms.
