The Construction Industry Research and Information Association (CIRIA) guidelines titled "InSAR and Earth Observation Techniques for Infrastructure (C805)," published in December 2022, had the objective of enhancing accessibility to Earth Observation (EO) techniques.

These guidelines serve as an introductory resource, providing insight into a diverse suite of technologies applicable to infrastructure management.

Technological improvements in the last decade have brought spaceborne EO data products to the point where their spatial and temporal resolutions are of immediate relevance and benefit to the infrastructure community. Infrastructure asset stakeholders can now make use of the globally available cost-effective spaceborne solutions to address their need to map, measure and monitor multi-scale, rapidly changing and spatially complex assets of all kinds.

This presentation will offer an overview of the CIRIA guidelines, with a particular emphasis on InSAR (Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar). Through the use of compelling case studies, we will share practical examples that illustrate the tangible benefits of InSAR for civil engineers.
