PCRaster 4.3.3

This page refers to an outdated version of PCRaster, an up-to-date version is available.

What's new

This is a bug fix release for 4.3. We fixed:

  • We improved the internal precision of the maptotal operation resulting in more reliable results when using large datasets (#336).

  • We fixed several memory leaks in the multicore module (#344).

  • We fixed a segmentation fault at module exit when PCRaster and GDAL are used (#343).


Straightforward with conda, see our tutorial.


Information about the PCRaster Python module including the function reference,  the spatio-temporal modelling framework, command line applications and and an introduction to  PCRaster can be found in our online documentation.
