The InSAR SBAS service will be available from 10 November 2014, to interested RSS users for processing SAR data from the ESA archives. The service, based on the full P-SBAS DInSAR chain integrated by CNR-IREA and ESA RSS into the G-POD environment, requires dataset selection over a specific AOI together with parameters/thresholds setting, and allows unsupervised processing providing in output geocoded interferograms, mean deformation velocity maps and deformation time series.
RSS users are kindly requested to participate in a brief online survey (10 questions) aimed at collecting feedback on the ESA Research and Service Support (RSS) service, in order to identify possible service enhancements and new user requirements, also in light of the new ESA missions. The survey should only take a few minutes to complete. In order to participate in the RSS Customer Survey 2014, users need to log in using their own ESA EO-SSO credentials.
