I had the idea to exploit Offset-Tracking operator to check a landslide event using S-1 GRDH data.
My experiment was based on the method proposed by RUS for glacier velocity -
The results are nice, but after terrain correction I experience a shift eastward and southward
The red polygon is the affected area, the green dotted line is the sea shore line, the green dots are the registered landslides and the red arrows should be the velocities.
The red polygon is the affected area, the green dotted line is the sea shore line, the green dots are the registered landslides and the red dost are the points where the velocities were taken.
On the second picture the offset is visible.
Any ideas why is this happening?

I don’t see a difference between both images, to be honest.
What exactly is shifted and what is the source of the green dots?
All green dots and red arrows should be behind the dotted line which is delimiting sea and land.
Actually I expected the crossed arrows from the first figure to coincide with the red polygon.
This is why I decided that there should be a shift.

oh, I see. Were water areas masked out in the SAR images?
What is the distance between the green line and the border of all points?
Did you test against a background image which of the sources is shifted - the green line or the red points.
@ABraun The shift is on the red points. The green dotted line is aligned with the SAR data.
During processing I didn’t mask water areas.

so you expect this area to be here actually? What is the distance?
Did you overlay the points with the SAR data before the terrain correction (by using the layer manager)?
sorry for this little delay.
What I need to do is like this
since the event I’d like to track is located in the red polygon.
I hope I could do this in QGIS 3.X.X
I was curios why this had happened after applying the OffsetTracking operator.

what is the scale of this offset? It would be nice too see this on a basemap.
How did you export the displacements after terrain correction?
Is it an option to retrieve the points’ location directly after offset tracking (without terrain projection) just based on the created xml file? ( example)
