Using Anisotropic Diffusion for Coherence Estimation
In this paper we will present a new coherence estimation technique for SAR interferometry products that adapts the estimation window size and shape during processing. This is of particular interest for sensors with medium spatial resolution, like the ASAR WS mode, where the estimator shall cope with the spatial variability of the targets in the imaged area. This method is designed to remove low coherence magnitude bias while keeping a good spatial resolution. Finally, this new approach will be compared to an existing algorithm for quantifying resulting quality improvement.
