Radar technology is used extensively by NASA for remote sensing of the Earth and other planetary bodies. In this case study, we learn about different computational concepts for processing radar data. In particular, we learn how to correct a slanted radar image by projecting it on the surface that was sensed by a radar instrument. The Web extra contains a Matlab data format file, as mentioned in the article.
