Abstract.  A new synthetic aperture radar interferometry (InSAR) data processing method comprehensively based on three parts of complex images is introduced. The method includes image pair registration and interferogram creation. These methods are improved and extended, and a set of integrated technology, which is named contoured correlation interferometry (CCI), is formed for the InSAR data processing. The CCI method needs only an arbitrary three parts of InSAR complex image pair to generate an interferogram without noise and blurring effect. The formulae of the CCI method are deduced and proved in a different way, the details and steps of the whole method are explained systemically, the algorithms for the calculation of fringe orientations are improved, and the discussions about selecting of parameters and comparing results of different methods are shown.
