# ![OTB]( Orfeo Toolbox
## Open Source processing of remote sensing images
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
Orfeo ToolBox (OTB) is an open-source project for state-of-the-art remote
sensing. Built on the shoulders of the open-source geospatial community, it can
process high resolution optical, multispectral and radar images at the terabyte
scale. A wide variety of applications are available: from ortho-rectification
or pansharpening, all the way to classification, SAR processing, and much more!
All of OTB's algorithms are accessible from Monteverdi, QGIS, Python, the
command line or C++. Monteverdi is an easy to use visualization tool with an
emphasis on hardware accelerated rendering for high resolution imagery (optical
and SAR). With it, end-users can visualize huge raw imagery products and
access all of the applications in the toolbox. From resource limited laptops
to high performance MPI clusters, OTB is available on Windows, Linux and Mac.
It is community driven, extensible and heavily documented. Orfeo ToolBox is
not a black box!
