Thank you for the reply.
Can you please then help me to install snap or were I ask for help. The download page does not show you how to install. I was on exactly that page you mentioned as said in my original question and copied that code to a file and made executable. I then tried to run it and got that error.
The page I used was exactly the one you mentioned in your reply. On that exact page I went to community and forum.
I am very sorry if these questions seem very easy to you as I see in the similar question you also mentioned it is straightforward. I have followed exactly the same process you mentioned and got that error. However thank you very much. I will see what I can do to solve my problem. Sometimes for professionals, the process can seem straightforward.
Yes, I understand that for some people it can be challenging. But there are many people how were able to install SNAP without any problem. And it should actually work as I should in my last post.
If it is not working like, this something is special with your system.
If this means unsuccessful installation, how do I solve it?
If this means I successfully installed SNAP, I will be installing the StaMPS/MTI next. With regards to this, there are two source codes provided in github, Source code (zip) and Source code (tar.gz). Is it okay just to download the first source code (zip)?
Thank you in advance for you assistance.
I am following the by the way the documentation prepared by Dr. Matthias.
StaMPS/MTI is completely independent from SNAP. You can use StaMPS without having SNAP, for example when you prepare the interferograms with Gamma or other packages. But many people use SNAP for the preparation of the interferograms (and the StaMPS export offered by SNAP).
So, the second part of your question is probably not related to the first one.
Both StaMPS source codes contain the same packages, the just differ regarding the compression.
Regardless of SNAP, you have to compile and configure StaMPS separately (including triangle and snaphu as mentioned in the manual).
Yup. My second question is not related to the first one. I am just taking it step-by-step as outlined by Dr. Matthias in his documentation (to avoid confusion). But did I install successfully SNAP? Because for interferogram preparation, I will be using SNAP since I do not have any other SAR software packages.
I’m trying to install SNAP 8 in the virtual machine (I already have SNAP 7), but for some reason I got the following error message “gzip: sfx_archive.tar.gz: invalid compressed data–crc error”. I have download the installer several times, but the issue persist, could you please give some advice?
Thanks a lot, I finally was able to install SNAP 8. I had to update my virtual machine to version 6.1.18, and then install a brand new Ubuntu operative system. Whit that SNAP installed smoothly. Thanks a lot for your help.
