+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 available.
+OTB may make use of the following optional dependencies: mapnik (use MAPNIK=on)
+and opencv (use OPENCV=on).
+If the following packages are installed OTB will be built and linked against
+them: muParser, OpenSceneGraph and tinyxml. Otherwise, internal copies of the
+code will be used.
