ICORE: Image Co-addition with Optional Resolution Enhancement (Downloads Page)
- Click to download the latest ICORE package:
icore-3.8.4.tar.gz (includes patches for Mac OSX >= 10.9)
icore-3.8.5.tar.gz (recommended; includes patches for Mac OSX >= 10.11.6)
This is ~618 MB in size and expands to ~998 MB after installation.
- This will be deposited in a folder where your downloads normally go.
Move it to an area with >~ 3 GB of disk space. This need not be where
your image data resides. Input image lists to ICORE are flexible and
may contain file paths to anywhere on your system. This minimum disk
size accounts for additional files made when running one of the
- Unzip your downloaded "*.tar.gz" file if not automatically done by your
system (e.g., "gunzip *.tar.gz").
- Unpack the tar file, e.g., "tar -xvf *.tar". This will
create the ICORE root directory, "icore-3.8.5/".
Delete the relic tar file (icore-3.8.5.tar) after unpacking.
- cd into this root directory and read the "README" file on how
to install the software and run one of the examples.
Here's the main software description and usage document:
icore.pdf. This is included in the above distribution
(under subdirectory "docs/").
- ICORE should build and execute on most Unix operating systems
(primarily Linux and Mac OSX under a 32-bit or 64-bit architecture),
however, there is no guarantee it will work flawlessly
on all platforms.
- Ensure you have at least "make", "gcc" and "g++" installed. For Mac users,
Apple makes these available through the Xcode toolkit, which is free.
- Ensure you have a recent enough version of Perl. Version 5.8.0 is
the absolute minimum. Perl is usually included
with Linux and Mac operating systems and its version can be obtained
by typing: "perl -V | grep Summary".
