AbstractThe polarimetric workstation, PWS, is a user-friendly and efficient PC platform software package that has been developed at the Canada Centre for Remote Sensing (CCRS) for the optimum extraction of polarization information from RADARSAT-2 data. PWS is currently being used by a majority of the CCRS scientists in their investigation of polarimetric applications. In order to prepare federal and provincial governments, educational institutions, and industry for integration of this new source of information into their research and operational activities, PWS has been licensed for free to Canadian governmental institutions, universities, and colleges; and for a nominal price to Canadian industry. In this paper, PWS is presented and its main functions and products are described. Future upgrades of the PWS are also presented.
