Hi guys

I am posting this on three mailing lists, but I also know that some of you
are involved with more than one project.

I would like to express my gratitude to all involved in osgeo-live dvd,
ubuntugis and orfeo-toolbox for providing "ready-made" solutions for us
Open Source Geo users.

I am doing a proof of concept for work purposes on Open Source Geo tools.

I have done testing on Ubuntu 14.04, and have installed or compiled from
scratch the most common tools and applications.

I have always been interested in ossim and orfeo-toolbox (that includes
Monteverdi), and was looking at using built packages.

I have run into a bit of a problem when I saw that there are no ossim-qt
and ossim-plugins in the osgeolive nightly ppa, and that ossim in ubuntugis
unstable is 1.8.20, with no otb 5.2.

I wanted to follow the osgeo-live install-ossim.sh script.

I then decided to use ossim and its friends from osgeo-live 9.0, and then
compile otb, Ice and Monteverdi from scratch.

Firstly, thanks to ubuntugis for providing standard used packages, so that
I do not have to compile certain things from scratch.

Secondly, thanks to osgeo-live for the install scripts.  I was dreading
this part, but it was easier than I thought.  Ossim and co are running
without any problems, so now I have ossim and its apps almost like on the
osgeo-live dvd.

Thirdly, to the guys at orfeo, for providing a superbuild for compiling
otb.  I was also dreading this part, but compilation went smooth, and I
even managed to compile otb just by using system dependencies (no deps were
downloaded by superbuild install)

So after some other experimentation, I have a real working proof of concept
that is sure to sway some peoples minds in the way op Open Source Geo

Just some bragging info

Using Postgres 9.5, with Postgis 2.2.1 (compiled against sfcgal)
Pointcloud, pgrouting extensions
Grass 7.0.2 (using the 7.0.1 install from ubuntugis, and compiled in 7.0.2)
QGIS Master from qgis.org (with ubuntugis-unstable deps)

and various  others such as pdal (compiled) just for the heck of it.

Again thank you to all for providing ready built packages and solutions, or
providing source code that is easy to compile!!!!!
