With tools for georectifying, filtering and calibrating radar images, you can derive elevation information regardless of cloud cover, day or night from stereo or interferometric pairs. The Suite is currently being enhanced in collaboration with the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) and GEOSYSTEMS/Germering. Recently, the DLR-created SRTM unwrap algorithm was incorporated. The new modules are flexible and can be customized to meet any organization’s needs. IMAGINE Coherence Change Dedection (CCD) uses interferometic coherence as a qualitative measure of change between two radar acquisitions. This enables the user to detect small-scale and linear features which changed between acquisitions.
IMAGINE Radar Mapping Suite supports a growing number of satellite sensors, including ERS-1, 2 and EnviSat, RADARSAT-1 and 2, TerraSAR-X (with one meter spotlight modes), ALOS Palsar and more. Data from other radar sensors is supported by a generic import interface. In early 2009, ERDAS will add a D-InSar capability and COSMO support to IMAGINE Radar Mapping Suite.
