Installation package Sen4CAP version 4.0

The installation package of the Sen4CAP system has been split into 4 parts to ease its download:

  • A zip archive containing all the necessary binaries and setup scripts (not considering MAJA, see below) [~1.9GB]:
    • install_script – contains the installation scripts that are used to create the distribution and to install the system and the tool needed for the integration of the Sen4CAP processors in SNAP
    • rpm_binaries – the RPM files for all other system components (SLURM, orchestrator, downloader, processors)
  • A zip archive containing the GIPP files [~1.2GB]: files needed by MAJA 4.x
  • A zip archive containing the global SRTM dataset [~16 GB]: files needed by MAJA and SNAP
  • A zip archive containing the global SWBD dataset [~900 MB]: files needed by MAJA. *To speed up the download, split SRTM and SWBD datasets per continent (Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, Oceania, South America) are also available.

IMPORTANT: In order to update MAJA GIPP, please follow the instructions provided in the sections 3.3.1 Installation procedure and 3.3.2 Update procedure from the Software User Manual (SUM).


  • Known issues
    • The SAFE and L2A product previews are not gamma-corrected and can be too dark
    • The SAFE validation step flags as invalid products with even a single tile having a low-variance band as invalid (`NOTV`)
    • The website has display issues on Safari
    • When deleting a site, the folders for the L2A products that were not processed by MACCS are not deleted and should be deleted manually. Normally these folders contain no valid product and contain only log and EEF files.
    • When executing seasons from the past, the automatic scheduled jobs might be executed before having all the products pre-processed
    • The L4C jobs are marked as finished with success even if there were no products as input.
    • The old marker products are not overwritten
    • The L4A markers are computed only when the L4A processor runs
    • New L4A markers are added for custom jobs
    • The HTTP API only returns markers from the most recent product
