Based on experience with the geocoding systems for ERS-D-PAF (GEOS), the SIR-C/X-SAR (GEOS) and SRTM missions (GeMoS), geocoding functionality has been extended for Envisat ASAR data. The existing Envisat ASAR Geocoding System (EGEO) can handle all Level 1-b image products (IMS, APS, IMP, APP, IMM, APM, WSM and GM1). Complementary to geocoded products provided by ESA (IMG, APG) the geocoding procedure applied at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) makes use of a DEM to achieve higher geolocation accuracy. The resulting geocoded image is either defined as EEC (Enhanced Ellipsoid Corrected) or as ETC (Enhanced Terrain Corrected). These products mainly differ in the underlying DEM used for geocoding. The EEC utilizes GLOBE, while the ETC utilizes the “best” DEM available in the data base. This “best” DEM can be assembled from different DEM data sets (e.g. derived from SRTM, ERS, …). Further differences such as the interpolative (EEC) and rigorous (ETC) geocoding approach will also be outlined. Furthermore, an incidence angle mask can be generated. The necessary upgrades for geocoding ASAR stripline products (e.g. IMM, WSM) will be presented. Stripline products cover a large area along track, as they consist of concatenated stand-alone products (“slices”). Thus the updates of relevant parameters have to be taken into account.
