In the next few years, there will be a substantial increase in the number of commercial space-based and airborne SAR systems and 3D SAR systems. This will result in affordable, new types of data that can be used to complement other sensor systems, e.g. LandSat, SPOT, and in some cases, solve serious data collection deficiencies. This is of particular importance to a number of agricultural applications. The promise of low cost, high resolution radar data available at a high revisit rate over the earth will lead to many new uses for the data. These include government inventory and monitoring programs and commercial precision farming programs. The availability of this data has resulted in high interest in products derived from this data. This paper describes a methodology for developing such products and present result from applying the methodology to a potential agriculture application.
