Orfeo ToolBox (OTB) is an open-source C++ library for remote sensing images
processing. It has been initiated and funded by CNES (French space agency)
in the frame of a program named ORFEO to prepare, accompany and promote the
use and the exploitation of the images derived from Pléiades satellites
(PHR). Orfeo ToolBox aims at enabling large images state-of-the-art
processing even on limited resources laptops, and is shipped with a set of
extensible ready-to-use tools for classical remote sensing tasks, as well as
a fully integrated, end-users oriented software called Monteverdi and also
access via Quantum GIS processing module.
This presentation highlights new features included in the last version of
OTB, mainly major improvements of the classification framework which
facilitate large scale analysis for automatic image mapping, new methods for
SAR image processing as well as a recap of the main features added in recent
releases. It further shows the current and future directions of the project
and opportunities for interested developers and users.
The presentation will be also illustrate by example of how ORFEO ToolBox is
used at CNES in the development of operational products, scale over France,
like annual Land Cover Map or snow cover product to exploit ESA Sentinel
missions provided with a free, full and open data policy adopted for the EU
Copernicus program.
