Abstract

Earth observation technologies can provide a significant contribution to the monitoring urban areas and critical infrastructures. In this paper, we show how to exploit the recently introduced multitemporal SAR RGB images of the Level-1α and Level-1β family in these applications. Simple, ad hoc algorithms are discussed to adapt these generalist products to the specific case study. In particular, self-organizing map clustering and object-based image analysis are used for urban area mapping. As for infrastructure monitoring, an application concerning railway monitoring is discussed.
