GRASS GIS Community Sprint 2011 in Prague - A Success!The GRASS Community is pleased to announce the results of the first GRASS Community Sprint, that took place at the Faculty of Civil Engineering - Czech Technical University in Prague, from 20 to 25 May, 2011.
The Community Sprint has been a successful event, thanks to both the perfect
organization by the hosting structure, which provided location and technical
supervision, and the sponsors, which kindly financed the greater part of the
developer's needs during the event.
The work has been focused on wxGUI improvements, GRASS7 internals (improved
vector topology engine, library access from other programs), translations,
implementation of new modules (r.threshold, v.pack, v.unpack) and bugfixing.
Developers also had discussions on broad topics like GRASS GIS usage in cloud
and cluster computing, Web processing services, toolboxes, integration of time
dimension to make GRASS a true temporal GIS, and the design of a comprehensive
About GRASS GISThe Geographic Resources Analysis Support System, commonly referred to as GRASS, is an Open Source Geographic Information System (GIS) providing powerful raster, vector, and geospatial processing engines in a single integrated software suite. GRASS includes tools for spatial modeling, visualization of raster and vector data, management and analysis of geospatial data, and the processing of satellite and aerial imagery. It also provides the capability to produce sophisticated presentation graphics and hardcopy maps. GRASS has now been translated into twenty languages and supports a huge array of data formats. It is distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL).
