We developed the automatic ground deformation monitoring system using Sentinel-1 satellites which is operating by European Space Agency (ESA) for the Korea Peninsula's ground disaster monitoring. Ground deformation occurring over a long-term period are difficult to monitoring because it occurred in a wide area and required a large amount of satellite data for analysis. With the development of satellites, the methods to regularly observe large areas has been developed. These accumulated satellite data are used for time series ground displacement analysis. The National Disaster Management Research Institute (NDMI) established an automation system for all processes ranging from acquiring satellite observation data to analyzing ground displacement and expressing them. Based on the system developed in this research, ground displacement data on the Korean Peninsula can be updated periodically. In the future, more diverse ground displacement information could be provided if automated small regional analysis systems, multi-channel analysis method, and 3D analysis system techniques are developed with the existing system.
