Orfeo Toolbox (OTB) is a high resolution remote sensing image processing library. It contains a set of algorithmic components which allow the user to capitalize on methodological know how, and therefore use an incremental approach to profit from the results of methodological research. OTB is made of a set of basic elements (a C++ class API) and utilities (independent programs built upon the base API).
GREYCstoration is an image regularization algorithm that processes an image by locally removing small variations of pixel intensities while preserving significant global image features, such as sharp edges and corners. The most direct application is denoising. By extension, it can also be used to inpaint or resize images. It is based on methods using nonlinear multi-valued diffusion PDEs (Partial Differential Equations) for image regularization. This kind of method generally outperforms basic image filtering techniques (such as convolution, median filtering, etc.) classically encountered in painting programs. Other image denoising plugins are available, but are not free, and the corresponding algorithms are kept secret.
SCAP-Java is an automatic thematical mapping software. It draws colors or symbol maps from your data, with step by step procedures coherent with the cartography semiology methodology. It was developed for education and map production, with an emphasis on usability: it's easy to create a PDF map from spreadsheet data and geospatial datasets (mif/mid).
