Earthquakes have devastating effect on population, landscape and economy. Since it is quite challenging to predict those events of utmost importance is to obtain reliable information after they had happened. This information is essential for rescue operations and for preparation of post-event management plans. In this paper two earthquake events are studied and produced are the ground displacement maps have been produced. Those maps are created on the basis of interferometric images obtained after processing SAR data from the ESA Sentinel-1 mission. The results have been compared with in-situ observations and measurements made after the event exhibiting good correlation with them.
