Norcross, USA, 20 June 2007: Leica Geosystems has released IMAGINE InSAR (previously known as IMAGINE IFSAR DEM), which enhances the ERDAS IMAGINE Radar Mapping Suite 9.1. For this, Leica Geosystems has developed a strategic relationship with the Remote Sensing Technology Institute of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) to create the new capabilities for its radar mapping software suite.

IMAGINE InSAR is specifically beneficial while mapping in perennially cloud-covered areas such as equatorial, coastal and temperate mountainous regions. Radar has the ability to see through clouds, allowing the surface of the earth to be mapped while being obscured with clouds.
