Environmental Mapping with TerraSAR-X
The protection, conservation and improvement of our environment is an objective continuously pursued by governments and public authorities and international corporations alike. Spaceborne data delivers reliable, affordable and cost-efficient geo-information that serves as a basis for targeted analysis, sustainable planning and successful management of our environment.
TerraSAR-X provides fresh and precise imagery at the right cultural stage time to monitor and manage your crops from planting to harvest.
Quick availability through day-light independence
In-time image acquisition covering specific short-period growth conditions
Very good crop type distinction through polarimetric capabilities
TerraSAR-X Sample Data for Environmental Mapping - Agriculture
Weather-independent TerraSAR-X data are suitable to quickly derive valuable information on the extent of forest areas, forest typesand certain forest characteristics - especially of interest if forest mapping is needed for areas with stronger cloud coverage.
Quick availability through cloud and day-light independence
Better distinction between forest types through polarimetric capabilities and utilisation of texture
