Monteverdi 1&2

Monteverdi is the OTB composer which allows building processing chains by selecting modules from a set of menus. It supports raster and vector data and gives access to OTB functionalities in a modular architecture. It was developed in 2009 for capacity building activities (teaching, simple image manipulation, etc.)

The software 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 composerYou can find a complete description of this application here.

With this 4 years of lifetime, we have a lot of feedbacks regarding how useful the tool was, but also regarding what should be improved to move toward greater usability and operationnality. We therefore decided to rework the Monteverdi concept into a brand new software, enlightened by this experience.

Monteverdi 2.0

Monteverdi success went far beyond this initial scope since it opened the OTB world to a wide range of users who needed a ready to use graphical tool more than a library of components to write their own processing chain. With this 4 years of lifetime, we have a lot of feedback regarding how useful the tool was, but also regarding what should be improved to move toward greater usability. We therefore decided to rework the Monteverdi concept into a brand new software, enlightened by this experience.

The development started in 2012 with regular release and an iterative development process whit short loop which include user feedbacks.

What's new in Monteverdi2?

  • GUI revamp: the software interface using the Qt toolkit
  • Modern viewer (navigation in resolutions, multiple color dynamic modes...)
  • Session manager : database manager to store all datasets and display parameters
  • Processing : interactive access to OTB application tools

E-learning

The Orfeo Toolbox provides a complete documentation with a comprehensive guide detailing the steps to install OTB and use it. For Monteverdi 1, the OTB team provide screencasts demonstrating and teaching the software features. This video works as progressive tutorials which would introduce the main functionalities of Monteverdi. For now only French version of screencasts are available.

The introductive tutorial (first part) presents the architecture of the Monteverdi 1.0 application:
