Abstract: The radio astronomical data analysis package CASA was selected to be the designated tool for observers to analyse the data from the Atacama Large mm/sub-mm Array (ALMA) which is under construction and has recently started taking its first science data (Cycle 0). CASA is a large package which is being developed by NRAO with major contributions from ESO and NAOJ. Generally, all radio data from interferometers and single dish observatories can be analysed with CASA, but the development focuses presently on the needs of the new observatories EVLA and ALMA. This article describes the main features of CASA and the typical analysis steps for ALMA data.
