This project was created to provide developers a framekwork to use OpenCV functions in OSSIM image processing chains.
"OpenCV (Open Source Computer Vision) is a library of programming functions for real time computer vision."

Step 1: Download the latest project source code from svn
>> svn co http://opencv-ossim-plugin.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ opencv-ossim-plugin-read-only
Step 2: Build OpenCV plugin
>> cd /path/to/source/ >> cmake -G "Unix Makefiles" >> make
Step 3: Add the plugin path in "ossim_preferences" file
To add the OpenCV plugin to the OSSIM plugin bridge support, add:
... plugin.file1: /path/to/source/libossimopencv_plugin.so ...
Don't forget to set the OSSIM_PREFS_FILE variable pointing to the "ossim_preferences" file:
>> export OSSIM_PREFS_FILE=path/to/file/ossim_preferences
Step 4: Check the plugin has been successfully loaded
>> ossim-info --plugins
Under the current project source code folder, type:
>> doxygen doxyfile
It will generate an on-line documentation browser (in HTML) from the documented source files.
