Abstract
This report provides a brief technical description of two separate sub-tasks involving exploitation of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data from RADARSAT-2. The first task consisted of generating Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) using the stereo SAR technique, stereo SAR compatible images from RADARSAT-2, and PCI Geomatics’ OrthoEngine© software. The second task consisted of creating mosaics of the Northwest Passage from 91 adjacent or overlapping RADARSAT-2 ScanSAR Narrow images, again using PCI Geomatics’ OrthoEngine© software. This report discusses the data and software that were used, the resulting DEMs and mosaic images, and the feasibility of producing these products operationally.
