Permanent Scatterer InSAR (PSInSAR) technique is used commonly to evaluate land subsidence for some cities in the world and the pilot project in Ho Chi Minh City has shown the capability of this technique for mapping land subsidence in the period from 2006 to 2010. The result shows that PSInSAR can be applied to study the land subsidence phenomenon more efficiently than any traditional methods. However, SAR data often are commercial images such as ERS, ALOS, COSMO SkyMed… that a large number of SAR scenes must be collected to ensure the best results. This paper introduces results of the average subsidence velocities in Ho Chi Minh City that PSInSAR technique is applied to process SAR data from Sentinel-1 and COSMO SkyMed satellite. Evaluating the preliminary result showed that the capacity of using free Sentinel-1 images to replace commercial images for monitoring land subsidence.
