This paper addresses an example of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data management and processing using standard open systems. The SAR Data Quality Analysis application includes SAR data decoding, visualization of whole image with the related characteristics, visualization of a zoomed portion of the image, impulse-response- function analysis of any pixel of the image and quality analysis report generation and printing. The SAR Data Quality Analysis application is built on an image processing library, TELIMAGO, resulted from a research and development program, that provides to the application developers a set of standard tools (including user-friendly interface objects, data input/output management, display management and data conversion tools), written in ANSI C language using OSF/Motif as graphical user interface, X Window System as graphic environment and UNIX as operating system. The SAR Data Quality Analysis application is essentially dedicated to SAR data users and investigators who want to decode ERS-1 data products, obtaining both image data and relevant ancillary data to be analyzed according to the SAR Quality Requirement Parameters, defined by European Space Agency.
