Quad-pol Radarsat-2 images over man-made features

Konsberg satellite services in Norway have the ability to acquire and process Radarsat-2 images. Several Radarsat-2 quad-polarimetric scenes were acquired during autumn 2008 from various man-made features in Norway: buildings, infrastructure, bridges, oil tanks, ships. We show how the polarimetric response can be used to get additional information from the objects as compared to one polarisation. For some features, we also compare the response from Radarsat-2 scenes acquired with both quad-pol and ultra-fine modes.
