Abstract: An overview of the calibration approach for LOFAR is presented. Due to the station beam shape and the effect of the ionosphere, LOFAR calibration is effectively a self-calibration for image-plane effects. Calibration of the data for these effects is achieved in a Major Cycle using both visibility data and image data.
