The upcoming Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) will provide a vast improvement in both sensitivity and angular resolution compared to current generation imaging atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes. A key science goal of CTA is a survey of the entire Galactic plane. Outcomes of this survey include a census of Galactic gamma-ray source populations (SNR, PWNe, binaries, etc...), identifying possible PeVatron candidates, characterizing the diffuse Galactic gamma-ray emission and improving our knowledge of the origin of cosmic rays. However, in order to exploit the data for these purposes, an understanding of the underlying sources present in the survey data will be necessary. This talk will describe current efforts to develop a pipeline for detecting, analyzing and cataloging sources from the anticipated CTA Galactic plane survey.
