The code is generally intended to support Linux. Some of it will also work on Windows and other systems, but not all. If there is interest in supporting anything other than Linux, please raise an Issue on the Github site.


The code is available as a tarball from GitHub. The source code repository is also hosted there.

Release notes for each version are available at Release Notes.

To install and run, follow the instructions in the given INSTALL.txt and USAGE.txt files.

It requires Python, numpy, and GDAL with Python bindings. The generated client-side download scripts assume the existence of the curl command, which is generally bundled with Linux.
