ITT Cooperates with Sarmap - 07/02/2011


ITT Visual Information Solutions (ITT VIS), USA, has signed an agreement with Sarmap of Switzerland to distribute Sarmap’s SARscape software products worldwide. A popular add-on for ITT’s ENVI software product for image analysis, SARscape provides ENVI users with the ability to read, process, analyse and output information from synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data and imagery.

  

SAR is an increasingly popular type of geospatial data and imagery that is used in a wide range of applications because of its unique ability to provide information about an area regardless of time of day or weather conditions.

 

SAR data, which first became commercially available in the United States in the 1990s, is a data type acquired from airborne and space-borne imaging platforms that can produce two or three-dimensional datasets of surface areas regardless of atmospheric conditions.  When combined with spectral imagery, SAR data provides an additional layer of contextual information about a geographic area of interest.  Users of ENVI and SARscape will have the ability to process and analyze both spectral and radar data to make more informed decisions.
