PCI Geomatica Webinar Series: Working with Compact Polarimetry Imagery

Get More From Imagery Webinar Series: Working with Compact Polarimetry Imagery

Dec. 10, 2015 at 2pm EST (7pm GMT)

Add Geomatica Radar tools to your software suite, and learn how to work with compact polarimetry tools for upcoming sensors such as the RADARSAT Constellation Mission (RCM). Learn about how to use the information that can be extracted from Compact Polarimetry versus fully quad-pol imagery.

Polarimetry Imagery

Did you know?

Researchers from the University of Lethbridge obtained funding and research grants for including Geomatica in their projects, since they were able to:

  • Build operational workflows to analyze data through the Geomatica Python API
  • Use specific Polarimetric algorithms such as the m-chi decomposiion
  • Process large amounts of SAR imagery

What are the main applications of Compact Polarimetry?

The RADARSAT Constellation is being designed for three main uses:

  • Maritime Surveillance (ice, surface wind, oil pollution, ship monitoring)
  • Disaster Management (mitigation, warning, response, recovery)
  • Ecosystem Monitoring (agriculture, wetlands, forestry, coastal change monitoring)

What You’ll Learn:

In this webinar, PCI Geomatics experts will demonstrate:

  • How Compact Polarimetry data is imported into Geomatica and visualized
  • Comparison of different compact polarimetry modes with respect to the full polarization for the identification and characterization of the land use classes.
