We are very happy to announce that OTB version 5.2.0-rc1 is available for testing !
Of course, some new features come with this new OTB version :
Machine learning : regression support in machine learning models and existing classification filters + two applications dedicated to regression training and prediction.
SAR imagery : basic support of Sentinel1 products, radiometric calibration updated, new SAR processings (polarimetry, decompositions, conversion of polarimetric matrices to each other) and related new applications.
- A better no-data support : Read, Manage, Write no-data in OTB.
- A richer Python wrapping : numpy array support, new way of writing an application in Python
In addition, two new remotes modules are shipped with OTB :
- Generic Region Merging Segmentation: providing the GRM OTB application to perform multi-scale region-merging segmentation on satellite images. Three local homogeneity criteria are available: the Baatz & Schäpe criterion, the Full Lambda Schedule criterion and the simple Euclidean Distance criterion.
- Images mosaicking: one application dedicated to images mosaicking with several compositing methods available (radiometric/color harmonization, feathering).
You can obtain the OTB source code using Git:
git clone https://firstname.lastname@example.org/git/otb.git OTB cd OTB git checkout -q --detach 5.2.0-rc1
Please test the release candidate and share your experiences on the mailing list and Mantis to help identify issues.
You can also submit experimental build to the dashboard with:
ctest -D Experimental
Congratulations and well done to everyone that contributed to this release. (Big up to OTB-dev team wich did an amazing work)
The final release is expected by the end of next week, if no showstopper is raised.
Rémi, release manager of OTB5.2
