The Applications and Benefits of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR)
Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) is rapidly becoming a key dataset in geospatial investigation. Unlike many other observational methods, SAR is not limited by illumination or cloud cover. In recent years, due to an ever-increasing number of orbital SAR instruments, and more yet to come, there has been a significant increase in data quality and availability requiring processing software to evolve. As a result, automated SAR-based analytical workflows can now run at-scale to solve problems across a wide range of disciplines including disaster preparation and response, urban development and land use, agriculture, change detection, and monitoring across land and sea.
In this recorded webinar you will:
- Learn the basics of SAR
- See several examples of how you may use SAR in your own projects:
- DEM generation
- Flood mapping and disaster management
- Activity monitoring
- See how you can use ENVI SARscape to process and analyze SAR data, generate products, and integrate information with other geospatial products
