+ORFEO Toolbox (OTB) is an open source library of image processing algorithms.
+OTB is based on the medical image processing library ITK and offers particular
+functionalities for remote sensing image processing in general and for high
+spatial resolution images in particular. Targeted algorithms for high
+resolution optical images (Pleiades, SPOT, QuickBird, WorldView, Landsat,
+Ikonos), hyperspectral sensors (Hyperion) or SAR (TerraSarX, ERS, Palsar) are
+Monteverdi, a satellite image viewer with access to OTB processing, will also
+be built as part of this script.
+OTB may use the following optional dependencies: opencv (use OPENCV=ON).
