ORFEO ToolBox status report

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.

One year of open governance for OTB: thoughts and context

One year ago, in the frame of the OSGeo incubation process, OTB team decides to initiate a Project Steering Committee to formalize the way that decisions are taken. It was largely inspired by existing governance in other OSGeo projects related to OTB like GDAL, Quantum GIS or GRASS. This initiative aims in encouraging people and organization to join the effort and participate more actively in the evolution and the decision process of the library. Most people well understand this approach and join the effort to provide high level guidance and coordination for the ORFEO ToolBox to guarantee that OTB remains open and company neutral. This presentation will come back on the set up of this open governance, how it improves the way that the project progress, how it could evolve in the future. It will be also the occasion to interact more largely about open governance and decision making processes in free and open source projects. Manuel Grizonnet (CNES)
