Because of its all weather, any-time monitoring capabilities, Radar remote sensing offers a number of advantages for Earth-surface and feature observation. The Geomatica Radar Suite is purpose-built to provide tools specialized for processing radar data in a standard remote sensing or GIS environment. The outputs from PCI Geomatics radar tools can be combined with other microwave and optical sensors as well as vector data to maximize the utility of information. Being part of the full-Geomatica system means this integration is seamless and simple.
Geomatica Prime includes dozens of algorithms designed specifically for comprehensive radar analysis that includes:
The SAR Polarimetry Workstation is a comprehensive toolkit designed to help develop techniques for applying SAR polarimetry to Earth-monitoring and resourcemanagement challenges. This state-of-the-art software reads the radiometric and geometric metadata to provide target selection, target analysis, and dataset processing utilities designed specifically for Polarimetric SAR data.
The SAR Polarimetry Workstation can:
The radar orthorectification module is a SAR specific model that is designed to reduce the amount of userinput ground control required. This saves considerable time without compromising the high spatial accuracy expected from PCI Geomatics. Radiometric terrain and land cover correction options are also available when generating orthorectified radar images.
Automatic Digital Elevation Model (DEM) extraction is available for RADARSAT-1, RADARSAT-2, ENVISAT ASAR, Kompsat-5, and PALSAR imagery, enabling one to generate accurate and up-to-date elevation information.
