I just opened an S1 SLC image and realized that unlike the convention of having a single VV & VH pair the image has three such pairs, each one of which has a real (i) & imaginary (q) part. The real and the imaginary part is quite intuitive to understand for an SLC image, what I am struggling here is understand how the strips are to be aligned for basic visualization before I even proceed with processing the scene. I also noticed that every pair has a separate number of strip counts, i.e. pair 1 has 10 strips while pair 2 & 3 has 9 strips each. Can somebody explain me how do we stitch all these pairs together
TOPS Deburst merges all these parts together.
TOPS Split lets you select some of these bursts if you only need a part of the image). This should be done before debursting.
