If you would like to know more about PolSARpro, make comments about the software or suggest improvements for future versions, you can contact us at the ESA Earth Observation Help Desk. You can use the same form to report software problems or to request notification of future software releases. We look forward to hearing from you.

PolSARpro is one of a family of Toolboxes distributed free by ESA, supporting scientific exploitation of ERS, Envisat and Third Party Missions. For more information about ESA's Earth Observation activities, visit Earth Online.
