# Orfeo Toolbox
## Open Source processing of remote sensing images
![OTB](https://git.orfeo-toolbox.org/otb.git/blob_plain/HEAD:/Utilities/Doxygen/logoVectoriel.png)
Orfeo ToolBox (OTB) is an open-source C++ library for remote sensing images
processing, distributed under the CeCILL-v2 license. It has been initiated and
funded by CNES (French space agency) in the frame of a program named ORFEO to
prepare, accompany and promote the use and the exploitation of the images
derived from Pléiades satellites (PHR). Orfeo ToolBox aims at enabling large
images state-of-the-art processing even on limited resources laptops, and is
shipped with a set of extensible ready-to-use tools for classical remote sensing
tasks, as well as a fully integrated, end-users oriented software called
Monteverdi.
