This RFC aims to integrate "small and easy" improvements in OTB/OTB app and Monteverdi related to users feedback and taken from the OTB wishlist:



List of wishlist items integrated:

  • Improve "Mean Shift Smoothing (step1): [3]
  • Button for restore default value for gamma and alpha value
  • Improve parameter description and documentation in OTB GUI (add short key as tooltip, improve documentation in the doc tab)
  • Fix in BandMath documentation
  • Button to reset all shaders to normal.
  • Handle missing file extensions in otbgui (currently a cryptic error message) : the application will try ".tif" extension if the output filename doesn't have one and if OTB is unable to write current output filename.
  • Show total processing time on completion in otbgui (otbcli has the 'time' command of course). Note that the execution time is measured by the otb::Wrapper::Application class, so this time can be retrieved on any launcher.
  • otbgui: add visual confirmation that processing has been completed (if it's very fast for example). At the end of a successful processing, there is a status 'Done' displayed for about 1 second.

Other small improvements made in GUI applications:

  • The small progress bar at the bottom doesn't pop in/out when executing the application
