The Open Source Geospatial Foundation is pleased to announce that Orfeo ToolBox (OTB) has graduated from incubation and is now a full fledged OSGeo project.

Orfeo ToolBox (OTB) is an open-source project for state-of-the-art remote sensing. Built as part of the open-source geospatial community, Orfeo ToolBox 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 as QGIS plugins or the Monteverdi visualization tool - or for developers Python, command line or C++.

Graduating incubation includes fulfilling requirements for transparent community operation, responsible project leadership, code provenance, and general good project operation. Graduation allows OSGeo to recommend Orfeo ToolBox as example sustainable open source software, giving users and our community confidence in the project and the project team.

With the Orfeo ToolBox graduation Manuel Grizonnet joins the foundation formally as a project officer (VP, Orfeo ToolBox.) OSGeo would also like to thank project mentor Landon Blake along with Brian Hamlin and Jody Garnett for assistance during the incubation process.

Congratulations to the Orfeo ToolBox community!
