OEEPE has participated in preparation and implementation of tests for comparison of different geocoding methods, ERS-1 SPR data and application of geocoded SAR. ESA has presented data and confirmed the tests. DRL has collected and distributed data.
EFAE presented other data of the second phase of project; these data included: KF-1000 images, Thematic Mapper data and DEM (digital elevation model). The location of the test was in Frankfurt, Germany and the images of four ERS-1s along with two DEMs and ground control information can be presented.
Twenty organizations from European and North American countries expressed interest in testing data. These data were sent to fourteen different organizations. Reports by A number of these organizations were presented at the fourth Geo SAR station.
These reports clarify the aims of the test and describe presented data. The methods and results are summarized and participants and supplementary articles examine the case thoroughly. It was concluded from the test that Geocoding can provide high precision in comparison with maps in cases where the volume of information related to surveying is limited.
