Paper Abstract

One approach to obtaining topographic information from SAR imagery is to utilize a multiple- image data collection scheme to collect stereo SAR images. The resulting topographic map, however, is generally of considerably lower resolution than the images themselves. This paper describes a new approach to the construction of topomaps that combines the lower resolution topomap with the SAR intensity images within a variational formulation. The result is a single formulation combining higher spatial resolution than were previously possible.
