Introduction to SAR Tomography

by |


to the facsinating world of Radar tomography. We developed a set of training resources for the introduction into this advanced Radar remote sensing technique. The material consists of mainly two components.

  1. A theory unit comprising Slides on Basics, Concepts & Techniques
  2. An interactive Python tutorial including a Jupyter Notebook
  3. Free Test data from the airborne F-SAR platform
  4. An explanation video on how to use the tutorial

Please find all the downloads and the video below. Enjoy.

  • Thank you for the interesting tutorial, I want to ask about the phase files used that how are these generated? What was the formula used to generate the dataset?
