ArcGIS Pro supports synthetic aperture radar (SAR) sensors. Supported sensor data is treated as a raster layer with radar properties and capabilities. The level of support depends on the sensor.
When loaded into ArcGIS Pro, the supported sensor data is rendered using the number of polarizations available. If the sensor data has a single polarization, the data is treated as a single-band raster layer. By default, it is displayed as a single-band raster using the Stretched symbology and Standard Deviation stretch type.
If the sensor data is dual polarized, the data is treated as a two-band raster layer and is rendered using RGB symbology. By default, this is displayed as Red = band 1, Green = band 2, and Blue= band 2.
If the sensor data is quad polarized, the data is treated as a four-band raster and is rendered using RGB symbology. By default, this is displayed as Red = band 1, Green = band 2, and Blue = band 3.
The table below lists the tools and functions that are available for the various SAR sensors. The ability to process the data using specific polarizations is only available through the geoprocessing tools.
