#include "otbVectorImage.h"
#include "otbImageFileWriter.h"
#include "otbPrintableImageFilter.h"

// This example illustrates the use of the
// \doxygen{otb}{MNFImageFilter}.  This filter computes a Maximum
// Noise Fraction transform \cite{green1988transformation} using an
// efficient method based on the inner product in order to compute the
// covariance matrix.
//
// The Maximum Noise Fraction transform is a sequence of two Principal
// Component Analysis transforms. The first transform is based on an
// estimated covariance matrix of the noise, and intends to whiten the
// input image (noise with unit variance and no correlation between
// bands).
//
// The second Principal Component Analysis is then applied to the
// noise-whitened image, giving the Maximum Noise Fraction transform.
//
// In this implementation, noise is estimated from a local window.
//
// The first step required to use this filter is to include its header file.

#include "otbMNFImageFilter.h"

// We also need to include the header of the noise filter.
