PolSARpro is an ESA open source toolbox for polarimetric SAR data processing and education. The software handles dual polarisation and full polarisation data from a wide range of SAR space and airborne missions.

The software is accompanied by in-depth online help, technical documentation for developers and a tutorial for self-education to a high level.

PolSARPro contains tools for data import, data conversion, basis change, speckle filters, data processing, calibration, Pol-InSAR processing, data simulation and interfaces with NEST.

PolSARPro is developed under contract to ESA by a consortium comprising IETR at the University of Rennes, The Microwaves and Radar Institute (HR) of DLR and AEL Consultants, together with Dr Mark Williams. The initiative is a direct result of recommendations made at the POLInSAR Workshops held at ESRIN in January 2003, 2005, 2007 and 2009.

PolSARPro is available for Windows, Linux and Mac and can be downloaded free of charge from the project website.
