SARscape® now added to its comprehensive list of supported spaceborne data also the support of Cosmo SkyMed data & formats ( SSC, DGM, GEC and GTC products), and Radarsat-2 data & formats ( SLC, SGF, SCN, SGC, SSG, SPG, SGX and SCW products). Besides these sensors SARscape® 4.1 now also supports E-SAR airborne data.

The interferometry module will now support the use of data pairs made of one ENVISAT ASAR and one ERS acquisition as well as data pairs from single- and multi-polarisation acquisitions.

An improved version of the new Persistent Scatterers Module will be released in December 2008 and will then support TerraSAR-X and Cosmo SkyMed data additionally to the already existing ERS and ENVISAT sensor support.

In order to introduce non-experienced Remote Sensers the easiest way into the SAR domain, a SAR-Guidebook created by SAR experts is available at www.creaso.com/sarscape.htm.
The SAR-Guidebook will give you an interesting overview about how to generate SAR products and their use for different fields of interest. To help the users to achieve their aims faster and easier with SARscape® a renewed intuitive Online Help will be included in the 4.1 release.

The core module of SARscape®, including technical support from SAR experts, is available for 12,000 EUR. Research facilities and universities can take advantage of a fair discount model.

Since 2007 CREASO GmbH distributes the software solution SARscape® for ENVI with the help of its cooperation partner ITT VIS (except for India), while sarmap – in collaboration with Privateers and Aresys – ensures the high quality of all current and upcoming functionalities and the support of forthcoming sensors.
