Vertical Parallax Ratio (VPR) is the ratio p/h, where “p” is the elevation parallax and “h” the elevation of the target. By analogy with photogrammetry, the criterion used to analyze a stereo configuration and its potential elevation accuracy is the intersection angle () or its equivalent base-to-height ratio (B/H). However, the accompanying graphics illustrate that in the case of radar imagery: 1. For same side stereo (Graphic 2, Graphic 3), the same or B/H generates a larger elevation parallax with steep look angles than with shallow look angles; and 2. For opposite side stereo (Graphic 1, Graphic 4), a small or B/H with steep look angles generates a larger elevation parallax than a large or B/H with shallow look angles. It is thus the reverse of optical sensor stereo images. In fact, the elevation parallax with ground range radar stereo images can be approximated by: p = h [cot 2 – cot 1] Where 1 and Radar Parallax Stereoscopic Parallax
