The fusion of heterogeneous image data, in particular optical images and synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images, is highly worthwhile in the context of remote sensing tasks as it allows to exploit complementary information - such as spectral and distance measurements or different observation perspectives - of the two data sources while diminishing their individual weaknesses (e.g. cloud cover, difficulty of image interpretation, limited sensor revisit). However, relating the heterogeneous data on the signal level requires a data alignment step, which cannot be realized without auxiliary knowledge. This paper addresses and discusses this fundamental fusion problem in remote sensing in the context of a framework named SimGeoI, which solves the multi-sensor alignment task based on geometric knowledge from existing digital surface models. Sections of optical and SAR images are related to individual objects using interpretation layers generated with ray tracing techniques. Results of SimGeoI are presented for a test site in London in order to motivate an object-related fusion of remote sensing images.
