CAPS Software

What is it?
CAPS is an extension of Tcl/Tk for processing AVHRR, and ATSR-2 GBT satellite data. CAPS can also display and reproject MODIS, MISR and ASTER data.

It is used with NAP, which is another extension that provides general array processing and HDF netCDF and binary I/O facilities.

CSIRO is making this software available to facilitate the development of Remote Sensing Science and the processing of other geotemporal data.

Users are invited to contribute their own algorithms to the developing repository of CAPS code.

CAPS is distributed as dynamic load libraries (.dll files) for Windows and shared object (.so) binaries for SGI, Sun Unix platforms and Linux. These are loaded using standard tcl/tk. Links for all these can be found on the 'Download' page.

Source access is via a developers agreement. Please contact us if you need such access.

CAPS 3.1 has been released. CAPS 3.1 provides support for NOAA 1b LAC format data. The HDF browser has been further improved. A number of new functions have been added and a number of bugs fixed.


The development of CAPS was supported by the CSIRO Earth Observation Center, Mathematical and Information Sciences, Marine Research and Atmospheric Research. We also acknowledge the support of the Australian Bureau of Meteorology, the Western Australian Department of Land Administration, the Australian Institute of Marine Science, Curtin University of Technology, the Institute of Antarctic and Southern Ocean Studies and the Queensland Department of Natural Resources.
