ORFEO Toolbox Changelog

New in version 3.18.1

July 26th, 2013
  • This version is a minor bugfix release.
  • It especially reworks the JPEG2000 driver to decrease the cache consumption and avoid memory leaks.

New in version 3.18 (July 6th, 2013)

  • This version redesigns the architecture of the machine learning framework, uses this new framework to include OpenCV machine learning algorithms, adds Dempster-Shafer-based fusion of classifications, improves the StereoFramework application, and provides access to Gdal overviews.

New in version 3.16 (February 2nd, 2013)

  • Manages GDAL driver options and sesor metadata through extended filenames.
  • The framework for residual registration is based on improvements in the sensor modeling geometry.
  • Feature extraction applications, fusion of classifiers, classification regularization, and one-click DEM generation from a stereo image pair.

New in version 3.14.0 (July 10th, 2012)

  • This version adds full support for Pléiades imagery, a new set of classes based on GDAL/OGR to handle large vector datasets efficiently, a complete framework to perform segmentation, and an extended suite of filters and associated applications to go from raw stereo pairs all the way to a real cartographic Digital Elevation Model.

New in version 3.12.0 (February 1st, 2012)

  • Large JPEG2000 file (Pleiades-like) support and Pleiades metadata handling.
  • Efficient JPEG2000 visualization and ROI decompression tools in Monteverdi.
  • A revamp of otb applications in a generic and scalable framework: launch applications from the command line, from an auto-generated QT GUI, from Python, from within QGis, etc.
  • There are many new algorithms: Dimensionality Reduction (ICA, PCA, MNF, MAF, etc.), change detection (MAD), Hyperspectral Unmixing, elevation map from stereo data, compare segmentation with a ground truth (Hoover), etc.
  • There are various bugfixes.

New in version 3.8.0 (December 17th, 2010)

  • A new object detection framework was added.
  • Local descriptors tools based on ImageFunction were improved.
  • In SVMClassifier, hyperplanes distances as output were added.
  • GDALImageIO now has support for writing non-streamable formats (such as JPEG or PNG).
  • Reading vector images of std::complex is supported.
  • In BandMathFilter, physical and image coordinates variables were added.
  • A class to generate a kmz file from an image was added.

New in version 3.6.0 (October 8th, 2010)

  • A filter was added to perform arbitrary mathematical operations on image bands.
  • A class to parse mathematical expressions and an interpolation function were added.
  • Filters were added to compute extrema of big images.
  • A filter was added to perform fine registration between images.
  • Filters for higher order texture computation were added.

New in version 3.0 (May 19th, 2009)

  • Applications:
  • Urban area extraction (Pléaides, QB, Ikonos, SPOT5). For more details, see the README file
  • Image to Data Base registration (Pléiades, QB). For more details, see the README file
  • Feature Extraction:

  • Radiometric indices (vegetation, water, soil)
  • Optimized texture computations including Haralick, SFS, Pantex, Edge density
  • SIFT density image function and filter
  • Object-based segmentation and filtering
  • LSD line segment detector and right angle detector
  • PCA computation
  • Automated loading of radiometric correction parameters (SPOT, Ikonos)
  • Attribute support for shapefile (reading only)
  • Optimization of vector data
  • Visualisation refactoring: for more details, see http://wiki.orfeo-toolbox.org/index.php/Visualisation_Refactoring
  • System:
  • Updated OSSIM library
  • Updated ITK library (3.12.0)
  • Miscellaneous bug fixes (support for gdal 1.6)
  • Fixed some problems under Visual and Cygwin platforms.
  • Distribution:
  • Distribution of Windows binaries packages installation for OTB-Application (OTB-Applications-3.0.0-win32.exe)
  • Distribution of Windows binaries packages for GDAL library 1.6.0 for MSVC V71 and MSVC V80 compiler (http://www.orfeo-toolbox.org/packages)
