Abstract
As the introducing first part of this paper, the data set of Christchurch, New Zealand, is outlined with regard to its purpose: the detection of earthquake damages. The aim is to produce simulated SAR images that are realistic enough to function successfully as pre-event images in a change detection effort. To this end, some modifications to the input 3D city model are introduced and discussed. This includes the use of a GIS map, for a realistic modelling of the radiometric variety, and the insertion of high vegetation to the model, so as to achieve a realistic occlusion of building corners. A detailed description of the impact, these modifications have on the simulation, is given and a comparison between the simulations and corresponding real data is drawn.
