==== Description: ====
The goal of the project is to establish a new file format called Generic
Tagged Arrays (GTA). This file format can store any kind of data that is
representable by arrays of arbitrary dimensions. In particular, it is suitable
for any kind of 1D, 2D, 3D, and 4D sensor data in areas such as imaging,
medicine, physics, chemistry, remote sensing, and others. The file format
provides a simple and flexible tag system that can represent the rich metadata
often associated with such arrays.

The project consists of two parts:

1. Libgta: A library to read and write files in the Generic Tagged Arrays
format. The library is written in C and provides additional bindings for other
languages (currently C++).

2. Gtatool: A command line software tool that allows easy import and export
from/to different data formats commonly (and uncommonly) used for array data,
in particular sensor data. Additionally, the tool allows all sorts of
manipulations of the array data and the associated metadata. For example, one
can import data from a specialized format, manipulate it, and then export it
while keeping the metadata intact. Gtatool is written in C++.

==== Other Software Required: ====
Libgta has the following dependencies to provide data compression:
1. liblzma, provided by xz, License: the liblzma part
of xz is public domain, see link above.
2. libbz2, provided by bzip2, License: the libbz2 part
of bzip2 is under a BSD style license that to the best of my knowledge is GPL
compatible. See
3. zlib, License: the zlib license, compatible with the
GPL according to

Gtatool has the following optional dependencies:
1. muParser,, MIT License:
2. NetPBM,, License: The libnetpbm part is
under a simple MIT-like license, see
3. ImageMagick,, License:, compatible with GPL
4. pfstools,, License of the library part is
LGPLv2.1+, see
5. OpenEXR,, License: modified BSD license, see
6. GDAL,, License X11/MIT, see
7. DCMTK,, License BSD-style, see
