Hardware and software requirements


A workstation running some flavor of UNIX like Solaris, IRIX, GNU/Linux, BSD, Mac OS X. GRASS also runs on on Win32 within the Cygwin environment. As a minimum, you should have at least 500 Mb for data and 32 Mb RAM. However this will allow you only a very limited usage of GRASS (although see here for GRASS on handhelds). For a serious usage of GRASS you will need 128MB at the very least. Obviously, a good video card is a must for cartography, ideally with 3D support.
