Monteverdi Application for OrfeoToolbox
OrfeoToolbox users have been asking for an integrated application for a while, since using several applications for a complete processing (ortho-rectification, segmentation, classification, etc.) can be a burden. The OTB team came up with a smart software architecture which allows building processing chains by selecting modules from a set of menus. It supports raster and vector data and integrates most of the already existing OTB applications. The architecture takes advantage of the streaming and multi-threading capabilities of the OTB pipeline. It also uses cool features as processing on demand and automagic file format I/O. The application is called Monteverdi, since this is the name of the Orfeo composer.
