On 6th April 2009 a Mw6.3 earthquake occurred in the L' Aquila region, central Italy, causing at least 297 fatalities and great economic losses. Using European Space Agency's ENVISAT ASAR data we generated three independent coseismic interferograms. Three popular downsampling techniques (uniform, quadtree and Resolution-based) were employed to create 4 different sets of datapoints, two of which were produced using the uniform approach with different sampling sizes. Uniform models with the 4 sets of datapoints show similar source parameters and residuals, indicating their impacts on uniform modeling are limited. However, their distributed slip models suggest that the resolution-based approach is preferred though similar slip patterns can be observed. Our optimal distributed slip model shows that this event is associated with a buried SW-dipping normal fault with the epicenter at (13.4506°,42.3580°),a strike of 141.3°, and a dip of 50°. In addition, the maximum slip of 1.2 m is observed at a depth of 6.1 km, and the total seismic monent is ~3.65×10^18N·m.
