OrfeoToolbox Seminar - University of Limerick - Thursday 14th June.
Following on from our Symposium late last month, the Irish Local Chapter
in conjunction with the Big Data Analytics Research Group (BDARG) at
University of Limerick and Coillte are very pleased to host a seminar by
Manuel Grizonnet (French Space Agency - CNES  / Orfeo Toolbox )
"Open Source Processing of Remote Sensing Images with the ORFEO ToolBox:
(very) Big Data Science At Scale"
The seminar will be held at University of Limerick, Computer Science
Building (room: CSG-027)  on Thursday 14th of June at 15h00.
Manuel Grizonnet is an image processing engineer working with the French
Space Agency (CNES) on the development of image processing algorithms
and software for the exploitation of Earth observation data.
Without doubt, it will be a very interesting talk - hoping to see many
of you there!
From weather forecasting to military intelligence, satellite images help
solve some of our most challenging problems on Earth. Since 2006, the
French Space Agency have been actively developing an open source remote
sensing image processing toolbox called the Orfeo ToolBox (OTB), which
provides a large set of ready-to-use tools and a high performance
satellite image viewer. It offers a wide range of processing algorithms,
which permit the creation of high level processing chains that will run
on a desktop computer or clusters alike. The processing capabilities
cover pre-processing for several sensors, feature extraction, image
segmentation, classification, as well as algorithms for hyperspectral
and radar data. OTB is now used to design processing chains that can
efficiently process thousands of remote sensing images (Sentinels, SPOT,
Pléiades) to derive country-scale value added products.
The presentation will present the challenge of extracting valuable
information from Earth Observation data and how open source software
like OTB can help in this context.
