#### Abstract

The geometric parameters of a electrically large square above a rough surface are reconstructed by means of support vector machine (SVM). The SVM input data are the amplitude of backscattered electric fields obtained from the accurate and efficient EM numerical simulation. The aim of our research is to reconstruct the geometric information while using computational resources as reduced as possible. Therefore, how the spatial and frequency diversity affect the reconstruction is analysed with respect to the characteristics of the scattered fields. Numerical experiments show that it is feasible to get an accurate reconstruction result with the backscattered multi-frequency data collected at just a few observation points which are specially selected based on scattering characteristics.
