The limited usage of SAR data in the end-user community and in applicative contexts testified the failure of the recent literature, in which the research privileged the automatic extraction of information at the expense of users' experience with data. The development of new products and processing frameworks providing user-friendly representations and extraction of the physical information is a necessary condition for the full exploitation of SAR sensors. In this Book, the necessity to restore users’ centrality in remote sensing data analysis is analyzed and achieved through the introduction of two new classes of RGB SAR products obtained via multitemporal processing, whose principal characteristics are the ease of interpretation and the possibility to be processed with simple, end-user-oriented technique. These proposed approach aims to definitely fill the gap between the academy and the applications. The rationale is to provide ready-to-use images, in which the technical expertise with electromagnetic models, SAR imaging and image processing has been absorbed in the products formation phase. In such way, the idea that SAR images are too complicated to be interpreted and processed without a high technical expertise in order to extract physical information is overcame.
