SAR imagery has begun to get consideration as a source for three-dimensional building models. High resolutions at pixel sizes of 30cm to 10cm and single pass interferometry support the geometric reconstruction of various small man-made objects. Our work aims at the detection and reconstruction of the structure of building ensembles from high resolution inerferometric and slant range SAR data. To fully automate the building reconstruction procedure we use a phenomenological approach, using layover and shadow boundaries together with edge information and intelligent combinations of measurements from all IFSAR data sources available.
