Chapter 3

This chapter presents guideline to perform various remote sensing and image processing tasks with either OTB Applications, Monteverdi or both. Its goal is not to be exhaustive, but rather to help the non-developper user to get familiar with these two packages, so that he can use and explore them for his future needs.
