The TerraSAR-X RADAR satellite has the highest ground resolution of any commercial RADAR satellite. At up to 1m ground resolution, this imagery can help geologists in locating access points to project areas (e.g. roads, trails, creeks) and map geological structures. Forestry companies can use the all-weather ability of RADAR to penetrate clouds, haze and smoke to provide a clear image of the surface. Mapping of landslides, flooded areas, oil slicks, forest fire extents and other related events can benefit from the acquisition of TerraSAR-X images.
As Karl Kliparchuk, GIS Business Manager, for McElhanney states, “The increase in ground resolution down to 1m and the all-weather ability of TerraSAR-X RADAR imagery, gives government agencies and private companies an important tool to better assess and manage their land-based resources”.
For further information and to purchase TerraSAR-X RADAR satellite imagery, contact Mr. Karl Kliparchuk at 604-683-8521 or email kkliparchuk@
