Abstract

The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) has produced the world's first 10m resolution L-band SAR global mosaic datasets. These data sets were generated to monitor forest changes from the 1990s to present time. SRTM-3 (90m resolution) DEM was used for correct for terrain-induced SAR image variations and for ortho-rectification. Both corrections were applied for geometric and radiometric calibration purposes. The data sets are useful for monitoring forest cover and forest change, and were used to derive forest/non-forest information.
