FIGURE 1. While synthetic-aperture-radar data can be easily and inexpensively obtained from orbiting Earth satellites, the resolution can be limited. By overlapping the data with more specific lidar data from areas within the same region, the inherent distortions found in SAR images can be adjusted for, as shown in this integrated SAR and lidar image of Denver, CO.
