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, and therefore provides an opportunity to collect data when other methods may not return usable data. In recent years our analytical capabilities have improved due to an ever-increasing number of orbital SAR instruments, a significant increase in spatial resolution, and development of new data processing software. SAR analysis may be deployed across a wide range of disciplines, including disaster preparation and response, urban development and land use, agriculture, change detection and monitoring, and many others.

In this webinar you will:

  • Learn the basics of SAR – what it is, how it works, and what it can tell you
  • Hear a discussion of SAR data processing steps and its limitations and sensitivities
  • See several examples of how you may use SAR in your own projects
  • See how you can use ENVI SARscape to process and analyze SAR data, generate products, and integrate information with other geospatial products

There will Q&A at the end of the webinar to answer your questions.
