AbstractRelief mapping from radar imagery can draw on a variety of techniques, all of which were proposed some 30 years ago although they remain far from fully operational. In this paper, the current state of the art is presented. The typical accuracies, which can now be achieved are indicated, and the technology, in terms, in terms of the sensors, algorithms and processing hardware which have made these developments possible, is described. Some promising approaches to making better use of the potential of radar imagery are proposed and the relevance of a radar-based world-wide digital elevation model (DEM) is discussed.
