Land Cover Classification from TerraSAR-X, 2013, Barrow, Alaska (US)

Widhalm, Barbara; Bartsch, Annett

Land cover (water, wetland, tundra, and bare surfaces) was classified from TerraSAR-X with a resolution of 5 m for the period of July and August 2013. The product is based on the interpretation of polarimetric TerraSAR-X data (HH/VV polarisation). In case water could not be classified due to high surface roughness, water was masked based on Sentinel-2 data.
