This section contains a collection of GRASS GIS related documentation.

See also:

Updated documentation is available on the GRASS GIS Wiki collaborative help site. The documentation content found here is a collection accumulated over many years. It is currently being sorted and information which is still relevant is being transfered into the Wiki. When this is complete the GDP will be scaled back. In the mean time be warned that the GDP documentation found here may be somewhat outdated, and the documentation found on the Wiki may be somewhat incomplete. We hope to have this situation rationalized in the near future.


Given all our efforts to develop this software over decades, please duely cite the software when using it (articles, maps, Web pages, etc):

Volunteers needed !

We want to proceed to a general overhaul of the GRASS GIS documentation. There is lots of work and any kind of help would be welcome (reading, writing, translating, etc). The main tasks at hand for the moment are:

  • writing a general tutorial

  • compiling more FAQ entries

  • updating module help pages

  • reading existing doc in order to weed out completely outdated stuff

  • translating existing texts

Anyone interested in helping us should subscribe to the GRASS user mailing list.
