ESA: Mapping land deformation with satellite radar data

Greece deformation

The European Space Agency ESA has developed a new Wide Area Processor, or WAP. The data processor can create maps of land deformation from satellite radar data over larger areas and with higher precision than ever before. These maps can be used to detect and monitor geological hazards.

Remote Sensing Based Post-Disaster Damage Mapping

Remote Sensing Based Post-Disaster Damage Mapping

By spatially extensive events, ground-based mapping is too slow, typically hindered by disaster-related site access difficulties, or too dangerous as in the case of potential radioactive contamination resulting from the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami disaster in Japan.
