Abstract: The ISOCAM Interactive Analysis System (CIA) (Ott et al. 1997; Delaney 2000) was developed to support the calibration of ISOCAM, (Cesarsky et al. 1996) the infrared camera on board ESA's Infrared Space Observatory (ISO) (Kessler et al. 1996) and to perform its astronomical data processing. The development, a collaborative effort involving several institutes, was led by ESA and began in mid-1994. Currently the system is used by 70 institutes, including the ISO Data Centre at VilSpa and the CAM consortium. CIA is generally available to the astronomical community and runs, using IDL 5,under DEC VMS Alpha, Solaris, DEC Unix, Debian (PC) Linux and HP/UX. CIA can be obtained electronically. With the end of ISO's post-operational phase in December 2001, the legacy version, CIA V5.0, will be released. We present the latest calibration results and algorithmic improvements, give examples of CIA's current data processing capabilities and outline the foreseen scope of the legacy version.
