In the last few years, the interest is increasing in the interferometric processing of multibaseline/multitemporal SAR data from complex urban or infrastructure areas. In order to locate and monitor a high number of ground structures with the lowest signal misinterpretation, the identification, i.e. the detection and height and deformation velocity estimation, of both single and multiple layover scatterers is an important step. This issue is addressed here by extensively experimenting the technique of adaptive differential tomography, a recent interferometric framework which allows to resolve multiple moving scatterers at different heights in the same SAR cell. To this aim, adaptive differential tomography is augmented with an automated information extraction algorithm. The technique has been applied to real C-band spaceborne data over an urban area. Corresponding results are discussed.
