Title:
Determination of optimal SAR illumination aspects in build-up areas 
Abstract:
The increasing resolution of SAR data opens the possibility to utilize such data for scene interpretation in urban areas. SAR specific illumination phenomena like foreshortening, layover, shadow, and multipath-propagation burden the interpretation. In this paper a high resolution LIDAR DEM is incorporated to determine the visibility of objects by a SAR measurement from a given sensor trajectory and orientation in an urban environment. Shadow and layover areas are detected by incoherent samp...    »
