These maps (courtesy of Eric Fielding of JPL) show the locations of the swaths of the interferometry datatake pairs collected during the SIR-C missions of 1994. Each line represents the centerline of the two datatakes that form an interferometric pair. Different line colors and line widths indicate which pair covers that line, as shown in the map key. A few interferometric pairs were collected by repeating the same orbit in the April SRL1 and October SRL2 flights, all the other pairs were collected during days 7 through 10 of SRL2. The map of the world is in a Robinson projection. The maps of the individual continents are in Lambert Conformal Conic projections.
Most of the SRL2 interferometry datatakes were collected in a special high-resolution interferometry mode (40 MHz bandwidth, VV polarization only) of the SIR-C instrument, and have a swath width of about 20 km.
