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
    • Deforestation
    • Activity monitoring
  • See how you can use ENVI SARscape to process and analyze SAR data, generate products, and integrate information with other geospatial products
