From the SIR-C polarimetric L-band data of Hotan, China, on 9 and 10 October 1994, the DEM of polarimetric SAR interferometry (Pol-InSAR) and the conventional L-band HH-HH interferometric pair are extracted. The difference of DEM generation using Pol-InSAR and conventional InSAR is discussed in detail. Based on the result of comparison and analysis of two DEM, it is conclude that the accuracy of DEM generated from the polarimetric SAR Interferometry data is significantly improved, especially for the area covered by rich vegetation with enough high coherence, the error less than 10 m. Finally, error sources of DEM generated by polarimetric SAR interferometry are further analyzed.
