Polarimetric SAR Data Processing and Educational Tool (POLSARPRO)
Entry ID: ESA_POLSARPRO


Summary
Abstract: The Polarimetric SAR Data Processing and Educational Tool aims to facilitate the accessibility and exploitation of multi-polarised SAR datasets including those from ESA (Envisat ASAR Alternating Polarisation mode products and Sentinel-1) and Third Party Missions (ALOS-1 PALSAR, ALOS-2 PALSAR, COSMO-SkyMed, RADARSAT-2, RISAT, TerraSAR-X and Tandem-X).

A wide-range of tutorials and comprehensive documentation provide a grounding in polarimetry and polarimetric interferometry necessary to stimulate research and development of scientific applications that utilise such techniques; the toolbox of processing functions offers users the capability to implement them.

PolSARpro is developed under contract with ESA since 2003 where the initiative was a direct result of recommendations made during the first PolInSAR Workshop held at ESRIN in 2003. The IETR (Institute of Electronics and Telecommunications of Rennes - UMR CNRS 6164) of the University of Rennes 1, France is in charge of the development of the PolSARpro software.

All elements of the PolSARpro project are distributed by ESA free of charge, including the source code.
