Source codes produced for the Cardiac Atlas Project are open source and hosted at the SourceForge project site. Ordinary users generally do not need to access the SourceForge repository system. You only need to access the source code if you want to start developing one of the projects. All source code is stored using mercurial repository system provided by the SourceForge. Below are links to source code repositories for each individual project:

For developers:

Obtaining source codes from SourceForge Mercurial system

If you would like to clone the source code to your local repository, you need a Mercurial software. For more information, please refer to SourceForge’s Mercurial documentation. To browse the CAP Mercurial file system, go to Use reponame to clone any particular sub project. Example 1: cloning the CAP Client (reponame = cardiacatlas) to a local folder called CAP_Client:

 $ hg clone CAP_Client

Example 2: cloning the CIMMModelToCAPModel project to a default local folder (this will create a local folder called CIMModelToCAPModel):

 $ hg clone
