Summer School on free open source software for satellite image processing

The SFPT, CNES and IGN/ENSG organize their first summer school on satellite image processing using free and open source software from 2016-07-04 to 2016-07-08 at ENSG in Marne-la-Vallée (close to Paris). 

More specifically this summer school will be based on Orfeo Tool Box (OTB) and MicMac. OTB is an open-source toolbox funded by CNES for satellite image processing and remote sensing (classification, segmentation…). MicMac, coordinated by IGN, is a complete photogrammetric pipeline recently adapted to satellite image processing. Three day of practical work are scheduled on Gnu/Linux environment (no prerequisite, except the ability to adapt to line command software).
