  4. The ISCE (InSAR Scientific Computing Environment) software is available to all WInSAR Institutional Members (Full, Adjunct I, and Adjunct II). As Institutional Representative, you will need to sign and return the ISCE licence agreement on the ISCE Software Page which provides access for all Authorized Users from your institution.
  5. If you are a Full (U.S. institutions ) or Adjunct I (institutions in Canada and Mexico) member, you can complete the CSA data use agreements for access to Radarsat-1. Note: Each WInSAR Institutional Representative from the United States, Canada, or Mexico who submits the appropriate space agency data use agreements automatically becomes a WInSAR Authorized Data User.
