AbstractThe Canada Centre for Remote Sensing (CCRS), and the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) have collaborated with contributions from RADARSAT International (RSI), to create an ortho-rectified RADARSAT-1 mosaic of Canada.

Using CSA's RADARSAT data archive, ScanSAR Narrow B descending mode data were selected. The majority of the data, south of 60 degrees was acquired during the growing seasons of 1998 and 1999. The remaining data were collected during the winters of 1998 and 1999.

A digital national mosaic has been produced at a 250m pixel spacing, in a Lambert Conformal Conic (LCC) projection. A hard-copy image map will be created from the digital product, and will be widely distributed. A second digital product with a pixel spacing of 100m will be produced in the Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) grid system. The UTM version will be stored and available by individual UTM zones (16 zones in total).
