Panama Canal

Panama Canal

The Panama Canal is a 77 km ship canal that connects the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean. The canal cuts across the Isthmus of Panama and is a key maritime trade route. This image is based on a single ScanSAR Narrow, dual pol (VV/VH) 300 km x 300 km product with 50 m resolution and captures the entirety of the canal and both oceans. RADARSAT-2 is ideal for maritime domain awareness and ship detection, as is show in this image where hundreds of ships can be clearly identified at both ends of the canal.
