SAR and optical data fusion

This session will be divided in:

  • A theoretical lecture where the Sentinel missions will be introduced aiming to provide an overall background on image fusion methods and applications,
  • A hands-on session with data processing exercises about Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 data fusion methods and applications.


The hands-on session will be based on Open tools developed within the ESA SEOM Programme (with focus on the ESA SNAP Toolbox, STEP platform) in the RUS environment.

More info are available here.


The theme for IGARSS 2018 highlights the pressing demands for “Observing, Understanding And Forecasting The Dynamics Of Our Planet”. 

More info on IGARSS.


Attendees will bring their own laptop and will be provided with access to the RUS platform Virtual Machine for the RUS hands-on exercises.


The participation to the course is open to the people registered to the International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium  (IGARSS 2018).

Once registered to the event, you will be able to select the the RUS tutorial - FD-6: SAR and optical data fusion with hands-on session using the ESA Toolbox SNAP in order to participate to the session.

Attendance to the RUS training course is subject to the IGARSS tutorial fee, in agreement with the IGARSS policy and conditions. Such fees will allow the symposium organization to cover expenses such as the access to the venue and logistics and do not constitute an income for RUS organizers or ESA.
