#2176: OTB quickstart - Full paths to image files
 Reporter:  micha        |      Owner:  osgeolive@…
     Type:  enhancement  |     Status:  new
 Priority:  normal       |  Milestone:  OSGeoLive13.0
Component:  OSGeoLive    |   Keywords:  OTB quickstart
 The OTB quick start explains to use tif images in /usr/share/data:

 Sample data used in this quickstart can be found in :


 If I cd to that directory and try to run the quickstart commands, they
 fail with "Permission denied".
 The quickstart does not explain that the commands should be run from
 user's home directory, and does not give the full paths to the test

 i.e. I would expect in the quickstart:

 cd ~
 otbcli_BandMath -il ~/data/north_carolina/rast_geotifflsat7_2002_10.tif \
   ~/data/north_carolina/rast_geotiff/lsat7_2002_20.tif \
   -out difference.tif -exp "im1b1-im2b1"
