This paper shows the results of Polarimetric SAR Stereo applied to urban areas. SAR stereo is known as a useful technique for three-dimensional (3-D) mapping. Until now many approaches and results have been reported, based on single polarization measurements. But SAR stereo has not been used with polarimetric information. In this paper, using the polarimetric SAR data acquired along a square-loop flight path, the 3-D imaging of urban structures, such as a TV tower and a building, are introduced.
