Abstract

A Digital Elevation Model (DEM) of the British Isles at 1” (~30m) and a set of orthorectified satellite image data products (from 0.3” to 1”) is being created by the LANDMAP project using a multi-processor Solaris machine, with some 0.65TB of on-line disk-space. This unique DEM is being created from multiple passes of ascending and descending tandem ERS Synthetic Aperture Radar data using commercially available software from Phoenix Systems Ltd. and GIS software developed to maximise ERS-tandem strip coverage. This paper discusses this data, the processing associated with it and its quality assessment.
