TerraSAR-X Radar Mosaics

In order to cover a geographical area larger than one scene, neighbouring geocoded or orthorectified images are combined into one image in a seamless way. Such a mosaic is quickly interpretable and combinable with other sources of information and can be used for map sheet generation.

A Radar Mosaic MCSAR is a seamless assembly of adjacent images into a single, harmonised dataset. The intersection lines are specifically selected in order to avoid the visibility of cutting edges. The radiometric adjustment of all scenes results in a homogeneous image mosaic.

The MCSAR product characteristics are:

  1. Multilook detected geocoded / orthorectified product
  2. WGS 84 with standard projections UTM or UPS
  3. Source map depicting the relevant input image for each pixel

Subsets of mosaics can be represented as Oriented Image OISAR. These subsets are characterised by a map sheet index corresponding to relevant national mapping standards or customer-defined grid systems.
