    rasdaman quick installation guide

    Note: This page is obsoleted and not maintained. Use one of the download and installation alternatives instead.

    This is a quick guide to install rasdaman on a Debian-type Linux system; it has been tested on Debian Squeeze. It assumes having a Linux user rasdaman under which all installation will be done. Target installation directory is $RMANHOME pointing to, e.g., ~rasdaman/install.

    1. Log in to the target system as user rasdaman
    1. Choose your installation directory (here: /home/rasdaman/install) and further settings (you may want to put these into ~rasdaman/.bashrc for automatic loading upon login; don't forget to reload it first time through source ~rasdaman/.bashrc)
      export RMANHOME=/home/rasdaman/install
      export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk/
      export JRE_HOME=$JAVA_HOME/jre
      export CATALINA_HOME=/var/lib/tomcat6
      export PATH=$PATH:$RMANHOME/bin:/usr/lib/postgresql/8.4/bin
    1. Install required packages:
      sudo apt-get install \
        git make automake autotools-dev libtool pkg-config m4 \
        bison flex g++ comerr-dev libncurses5-dev libedit-dev \
        libtiff4-dev gdal-bin libgdal1-dev libnetpbm10-dev \
        postgresql libecpg-dev libsqlite-dev sqlite3 \ 
        python-dateutil python-lxml python-gdal python-setuptools
        openjdk-6-jdk tomcat6
      sudo easy_install install glob2
    1. Get and compile rasdaman, configured to sit in $RMANHOME
      git clone git://
      cd rasdaman
      autoreconf -fi
      ./configure --prefix=$RMANHOME --with-wardir=$CATALINA_HOME/webapps/
    1. Install it
      make install
    1. If PostgreSQL support is needed (see options): Add super user in postgres (same name as the local user)
      sudo -u postgres createuser -s rasdaman -P
    1. Setup the rasdaman database: #if you want to use OGC services via petascope component
    2. Start the rasdaman server
    3. Insert demo data localhost 7001 $RMANHOME/share/rasdaman/examples/images/ rasadmin rasadmin
    4. Check if demo data has been inserted
      rasql -q 'select c from RAS_COLLECTIONNAMES as c' --out string

    After these steps you are all set to use rasdaman as a scalable n-D array engine.

    For configuring rasdaman as a spatio-temporal geo raster server, continue with petascope configuration and deployment.
