As stated in previous e-mails, we would like to see more software from
the raster world (rasdaman, WKTRaster).
Also, I have been testing Orfeo Toolbox
(http://www.orfeo-toolbox.org/otb/) lately, and I have to say it is
excellent for remote sensing applications. I would like to see that in
OSGeo Live DVD 5.0! (Of course I wish to volunteer to help with that)
