TISAR

DEM/ORI Production and Service for the ERS SAR and ENVISAT ASAR systems

The TISAR project aims at providing a fully integrated semi-automatic radar DEM production line using radargrammetry and interferometry. Both techniques are already fully operational at SYNOPTICS (radargrammetric DEM production) and SARMAP (InSAR DEM production).

Project Description
 Objectives

The TISAR project aimed at providing a fully integrated semi-automatic radar DEM production line using radargrammetry and interferometry.

The project objectives have been realised in three phases:

  1. Service and product definition stage
  2. Up-grade of existing stereo and InSAR processing capability to ingest and process Envisat ASAR InSAR and stereo data, production of on-line user interface for DEM quotation, test of processing up-grade capability and production stereo/InSAR DEMs for service case areas
  3. Service assessment – in conjunction with the end-users, the up-graded service capability has been assessed using high quality reference DEMs. A terrain dependent assessment of vertical accuracies that can be expected stereo and InSAR DEMs
