What changes will be made and why they would make a better Orfeo ToolBox?

After using Monteverdi, I think we can improve the user experience with small things. Please find the list below:

  • Layers
    • Replace the mouse cursor icon when in swipe mode (or horizontal arrow when swiping vertically and a vertical arrow when swiping horizontally)
    • Indicate X and Y values in lat/long (in italic to indicate that the position is estimated) for sensor layer
    • Use the ENTRY key to select a layer in the layer view.
    • Use the SHIFT+ENTRY key to hide/show a layer
    • Add a right click menu in layer view to remove, up and down or move to upper and bottom the selected layer
    • Add a button remove all layers but not the selected
  • Shaders
    • Add a button reset all shaders to normal one
    • Rename the render toolbar to zoom bar
    • Use the ESC button as shortcut to go back to normal shader when we use a other shader
  • Gamma
    • Add a button for restore default value for gamma and alpha value
    • Add a tool-tip for alpha as for gamma
  • Misc
    • Add the possibility to hide the projection toolbar

When will those changes be available (target release or date)?


Who will be developing the proposed changes?
