> Image segmentation partitions the image into patches that are internally consistent in terms of image properties. This is an important step in those (most common) cases in which landscape units of interest are configured by many non-uniform pixels and thus single-pixel properties are not sufficient to characterize a unit type. Segmentation becomes increasingly important as remotely sensed imagery becomes of increasing spatial resolution. In this presentation, after a brief introduction, I will focus on practical aspects of segmentation with OTB such as the impact of varying the different parameters involved in Mean-Shift based segmentation.

***[CONFIRMED]** ZOO-Project: the way to use OTB applications as WPS services (Gérald Fenoy - Geolabs)
> The ZOO-Project is an open source software which provides a Web Processing Service (WPS) compliant and developer-friendly framework to easily create and chain Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) Webservices. It supports both 1.0.0 and 2.0.0 versions of the OGC specification. It can handle execution of WPS Services implemented in various programming languages and can also take advantages of various processing engine such as OrfeoToolBox (OTB). Using this ZOO-Project support gives users the capacity to use OTB applications remotely from any WPS client. The presentation will quickly introduce the specific capabilities of the ZOO-Project such as automatic publication of result using OGC Web Services through MapServer and how this can used when using OTB applications as WPS services. Also the current development status of the High Performance Computing (HPC) support in the ZOO-Project will be presented. With this support, one will be able to not only to execute OTB applications that runs locally to the WPS Server but also invoke OTB applications that will run on HPC server.
