Summary
Abstract: RAT (Radar Tools) is a powerful open-source software tool for processing SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) remote sensing data. Our motivation to start the development of RAT is that modern remote sensing software like Erdas Image or ENVI include only some basic SAR functionality. Advanced algorithms in SAR polarimetry (PolSAR), interferometry (InSAR) and polarimetric interferometry (PolInSAR) have ... View entire text
