Radar Satellite

October 2008

This was an image created for my thesis seminar at Waterloo. I studied segmentation of image data from the RADARSAT-2 satellite for sea ice mapping, so I created a simple model of a radar satellite based on RADARSAT-2 (but with some differences and simplifications to save time). The Earth model uses texture maps from NASA. Later on, I used this image as a cover slide for a workshop presentation.
