DLR Radar Satellites trace Settlement Patterns

The vertical structures of building reflect the satellite radar signals

Scientists at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) recently developed a satellite-based map of human settlements, with a precision currently unparalleled by other global surveys. The maps are based on data of the German radar satellites TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X captured from an altitude of 500 kilometres.
