ALOS-2 PALSAR-2 Level 1.5 Terrain Correction


I am trying to terrain correct ALOS-2 PALSAR-2 Level 1.5 data but it does not work. Can anyone suggest an open-source alternative to terrain correct the data? When I try with ASF MapReady it just crashes…



Did you see this work-around of @gusortiz?

Hi ABraun,

unfortunately the post does not address the terrain correction issue. I could geocode my data fine using Radar > Geometric > SAR Moisaic.

There does not seem to be a solution for Terrain Correction of ALOS-2 PALSAR-2 Level 1.5 (WD1 mode) in SNAP…

Hi Elsa,

I am having the same issue. Did you end up finding a solution?


Hi, no not with SNAP. The only way is to use a different software.
