This is the first time that indivdual trees are reconstructed from SAR data. The following video shows the ingenuity of our algorithm where advancded tomographic SAR inversion and robust 3-D modeling have been employed. This research opened a new perspective of using SAR for the monitoring of our natural environment.

A detailed description of our algorithm can be found in the publication: M. Schmitt,  M. Shahzad, and X. Zhu, “Reconstruction of Individual Trees from Multi-Aspect TomoSAR Data”, Remote Sensing of Environment 165, 2015.
