Distribution Data Repository

Each CASA distribution comes with a minimal repository of binary data that is required for CASA to function properly. Over time (couple of months), the geodetic and ephemeris data in this repository slowly drifts out of date. Because of this, the distribution data repository must be updated occasionally.

The owner (in the Linux fileseystem sense) of the CASA distribution can update the data repository by running (from within CASA):

CASA <2>: ! update-data
