Abstract :

This session concerns the 3-D reconstruction of urban environments using a stack of SAR data acquired in a Multi-Baseline Interferometric configuration, and processed using tomographic coherent focusing techniques. Beyond the primary objectives of this type of approach, i.e. 3-D elevation and reflectivity maps and 3-D sub-wavelength motion over time, the papers in this session propose innovative techniques, based on compressive sensing techniques and multivariate spectral analysis methods, for 3-D change detection, or robust reconstruction using regularized focusing approaches, improved rank estimation … that represent the current state-of-the-art.
