TSX (and PAZ) sar sensor model

Gaëlle USSEGLIO requested to merge ussegliog/otb:2199-TSX-metadata into release-7.4


Integrates TSX metadata in OTB (version 7.x) and correctly writes inofrmation into .geom file.


See #2199

Implementation Details

Classes and files

Several classes were changed or created :

  • ossimTerraSarXSarSensorModel : Read and parse xml file to fill the ossimKeyWordList with TSX-1/PAZ-1 metadata
  • ossimPluginProjectionFactory : Include ossimTerraSarXSarSensorModel as model
  • otbTerraSarXSarImageMetadataInterface (new) : Implement interface functions used in some application like ReadImageInfo to get a few information such as the imaging production year/month or radar frequency.
  • otbTerraSarXSarImageMetadataInterfaceFactory (new) : Factory to create TerraXSar interface.
  • otbImageMetadataInterfaceFactory : Include otbTerraSarXSarImageMetadataInterfaceFactory to the list of factories
  • otbSarImageMetadataInterfaceFactory : Include otbTerraSarXSarImageMetadataInterfaceFactory to the list of factories
  • otbTerraSarBrightnessImageFilter : Replace otbTerraSarImageMetadataInterface by otbTerraSarXSarImageMetadataInterface

A few classes were removed :

  • otbTerraSarImageMetadataInterface
  • otbTerraSarImageMetadataInterfaceFactory
  • ossimTerraSarProductDoc
  • ossimTerraSarTiffReader
  • ossimTerraSarModel

With monteverdi by comparing projection between TSX or PAZ SAR images and DEM.

A few tests exist to check TSX sensor :

  • raTvTerraSarBrightnessImageFilterTest
  • raTvTerraSarBrightnessFunctor
  • raTvTerraSarBrightnessImageComplexFilterTest
  • raTvSarBrightnessToImageFilterWithoutNoise
  • raTvSarBrightnessToImageWithComplexPixelFilter
  • raTvSarBrightnessToImageFilter
  • raTvSarRadiometricCalibrationToImageWithRealPixelFilter_TSX_PANGKALANBUUN
  • raTvSarRadiometricCalibrationToImagePixelFilterWithExtractROIBefore_TSX_PANGKALANBUUN
  • raTvSarRadiometricCalibrationToImageWithComplexPixelFilterWithoutNoise_TSX_PANGKALANBUUN
  • raTvSarRadiometricCalibrationToImageCompareFilter_TSX_PANGKALANBUUN
  • raTvSarRadiometricCalibrationToImageWithComplexPixelFilter_TSX_PANGKALANBUUN

Two tests remain KO (raTvSarBrightnessToImageWithComplexPixelFilter and raTvSarBrightnessToImageFilter) due to a wrong implementation for the legacy TerraSar interface (see #2158 (closed))
