Synthetic Aperture Radar is the only instrument that can provide consistent remote sensing data for south China with persistent cloud cover and rain. In this paper, the potential of multi-temporal ERS, ENVISAT-1 and PALSAR data for land cover/land use classification and urban change detection was investigated at a test area in Fuzhou city, the capital of Fujian province in southeastern China. Both SAR backscatter intensity characteristics and interferometric data were analyzed. Two methods were… CONTINUE READING
