Monitor Deforestation with SAR | The SAR Insider Series

We learned in our previous episode that understanding changes to vegetation can be difficult, because in many areas of the world where plants grow there are clouds and rain that can obscure geospatial sensors. In this episode of the SAR Insider, Megan shows us how to monitor deforestation using SAR data.

Included in this episode:

  • How and why she chose SAR data for this application
  • Why ENVI SARscape was her tool of choice to process the data
  • The unique insights gleaned from processing and analyzing the SAR data
  • The steps she used to extract actionable information

Watch this recorded session see how the combination of SAR data and ENVI SARscape products can be used to boost your deforestation monitoring capabilities.

About the SAR Insider Series

SAR data is an incredible tool for agriculture and forest oversight, displacement mapping, disaster management and other monitoring applications. But if you are unfamiliar with how it can benefit your analysis, then you are not alone. When L3Harris Solutions Engineer, JP Metcalf, wanted to learn more about SAR data and its applications, he tapped fellow Solutions Engineer and in-house SAR expert, Megan Gallagher to share her SAR wisdom.

This video series gives you the chance to listen in on those conversations and learn right alongside JP. Using case study examples, Megan will demonstrate SAR data applications and introduce you to the tools she depends on, like ENVI SARscape and ENVI SARscape Analytics. Check out the recorded episodes and learn about SAR the same way it is taught to solutions engineers internally.
