Free For All! - TanDEM-X Reader for ENVI
With advent of new satellite data and products one begins to wonder “Will my geospatial software be able to read and display this data?” No one wants to buy something they won't be able to view and manipulate with the programs they have already purchased. The programmers at Exelis appear to have anticipated this issue when it comes to TerraSAR-X/TanDEM-X data as they recently released a new reader that can be downloaded from their code library here.
This extension will become more useful as the two satellites continue to collect elevation data of the Earth. They recently completed their first full global-coverage collection with the twin satellites, which we discussed in our March 2012 Edition of The Geospatial Times – you can find this article here.
