Welcome to the remote sensing and GIS software library (RSGISLib) Doco Wiki. To contribute please register.
The remote sensing and GIS software library (RSGISLib) was developed by Peter Bunting and Dan Clewley in the Earth Observation Group at Aberystwyth University. The software is a collection of tools for processing remote sensing and GIS datasets. The tools are accessed via an XML interface, enabling batch processing.
The latest release of RSGISLib can be downloaded from the Bitbucket downloads page while the latest development builds (recommended) can be checked out of the mercurial repository using the following command:
hg clone https://bitbucket.org/petebunting/rsgislib rsgislib-code
To build and install RSGISLib the CMake build system is used. Therefore, with all the pre-requists installed and findable by CMake then just the following commands are required to build and install RSGISLib:
cmake make make install
For detailed instructions on installing RSGISLib and its pre-requists view one of the following pages:
For information on the available commands and how to execute the software see the User Guide. A comprehensive list of all available xml commands is available in the folder 'xml_standards' within the RSGISLib source. If you have RSGISLib installed, the list can be opened using the command:
Alternatively, the list can be viewed / downloaded here
Examples of processes using RSGISLib either with single or multiple commands are available on the Examples page.
To add new tools to RSGISLib read the Developers Guide
