Polarimetric SAR data possess a high potential for classification of the Earth surface. Various publications demonstrate detailed analysis of soil and vegetation properties and characteristics of man made structures on selected examples. To ensure wider application of these developments, integration in commercial systems should be studied. In a first approach, the object based image analysis eCognition is employed on alpha, entropy and anisotropy and the span of fully polarimetric L-band SAR data of the German airborne sensor, E-SAR. We show that by using eCognition land cover classes can be conveniently assigned to the scattering classes and ambiguities can be resolved by geometric and context object features
