Obtaining city models in a large scale is usually achieved by means of remote sensing techniques, such as synthetic aperture radar (SAR) interferometry and optical image stereogrammetry. Despite the controlled quality of these products, such observation is restricted by the characteristics of their sensor platform, such as revisit time and spatial resolution. Over the last decade, the rapid development of social media has accumulated vast amount of freely available online images. Despite their uncontrolled quality, these images constitute a set of redundant spatial-temporal observations of our dynamic 3D urban environment. These images contain useful information that can complement the remote sensing data, especially the SAR images. This paper presents a preliminary study of fusing social media and SAR images, for the reconstruction of spatial-temporal (hence 4D) city models. We describe a general approach to geometrically combine the information of these two types of images that are nearly impossible to even coregister without a precise 3D city model due to their distinct imaging geometry. It is demonstrated that, one can obtain a new kind of city model that includes high resolution optical texture for better scene understanding and the dynamics of individual buildings up to the precision of millimeter retrieved from SAR interferometry.
