Rapid Topographic Mapping with TerraSAR-X

Topographic Mapping with TerraSAR-X

Topographic base maps are essential for up-to date decision-making in a wide variety of monitoring and planning activities e.g. in civil engineering, oil & gas exploration, defence missions as well as land administration. The all-weather capabilities and unrivalled geolocation accuracy of TerraSAR-X facilitates the creation of topographic maps in scales up to 1:25,000 or 1:50,000 at any place on Earth - very quickly and with high thematic quality. Using TerraSAR-X for mapping applications allows a one-stop approach to data acquisition, elevation model generation and map production - delivering a budget-friendly and time-efficient solution.
