For the global TanDEM-X DEM the whole world will be acquired by at least two coverages. Thereby on the one hand phase unwrapping errors are reduced by applying the dual-baseline method and on the other hand a low noise level is ensured even for difficult areas like forests and steep terrain. During DEM mosaicking, the single interferometric DEMs are merged together. This paper focuses on the combination of heights in overlapping areas with significant height differences. The challenge here is to choose the most reliable height value. The improvement applying this strategy in contrast to simple averaging and the general benefit of using more than one acquisition is shown by means of some example mosaics.
