Sentinel-1 Interferometric Coherence for Vegetation and Mapping
SinCohMAP is an European Space Agency SEOM project with the objective of developing, analysing and validating novel methodologies for land cover & vegetation mapping using Sentinel-1 Interferometric Coherence Evolution. One of the main objectives of the project is to quantify the impact in using Sentinel-1 InSAR (Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar) data relative to traditional land cover and vegetation mapping using optical data (especially Sentinel-2) or SAR-based (Synthetic Aperture Radar) approaches. In consequence, the project is designed to clearly state this point.
