GRASS GIS Community Sprint 2012 in Prague - Great achievements!
The GRASS Community is pleased to announce the results of the second GRASS Community Sprint, that took place at the Faculty of Civil Engineering - Czech Technical University in Prague, from 23 to 28 May, 2012.
Following the FOSS4G-CEE &
Geoinformatics conference, the Community Sprint has been an
exciting event, thanks to both the perfect organization by the hosting
institution, which provided location and technical support, and the
sponsors, which kindly financed the major part of the developer's
needs during the event.
The work has been focused on wxGUI bugfixing, GRASS 7 time series and 4D data
management (R-tree search structures extended to n dimensions, new time series management
improved), translations, discussions about the planned toolbox concept,
implementation of a new module (v.in.geopaparazzi) and lots of bughunting, testing,
and bugfixing. For interoperability, the new QGIS-Sextante-GRASS interface was
completely overhault and updated. The upcoming improved GRASS Python API was
discussed in detail.
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).
