Polarimetric synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images describe objects via polarization synthesis and present much richer information than monopolarized SAR images. Furthermore, multidirectional flights of polarimetric SAR can see 3-D stereo objects in different angles. The height and the location of the 3-D objects can be retrieved from the polarimetric SAR images in multidirectional flights. This letter presents a tractable approach for the reconstruction of 3-D stereo buildings from two airborne PI-SAR images taken from opposite directions (at X-band with a spatial resolution of 1.5 m).
