Try GRASS GIS online

There are several ways to try out GRASS GIS in your browser without even installing it. You can have a glance at GRASS GIS in either Binder or rollApp.


Try Jupyter notebooks with GRASS GIS on Binder

GRASS GIS Jupyter intro

The Binder project offers reproducible, shareable, interactive computing environments. From the GRASS GIS community, GitHub repositories are available to launch a GRASS GIS computing environment with sample data and working examples. Through the Binder hub mybinder.org, compute environments defined in the git repositories can be built and started. You can do so by simply clicking on one of the two browser images with Jupyter notebooks:

By clicking on the upper screenshot you can start a basic introduction to Jupyter Notebooks with GRASS GIS.

GRASS GIS Jupyter modelling course

By clicking on the lower screenshot you can start a full, reproducible geospatial modelling course with GRASS GIS. You can select your topic of interest by double clicking one of the notebooks once Jupyter has started.

Note: Using GRASS GIS in a Jupyter Notebook requires at least basic skills in Python or UNIX command line and does not include the full graphical user interface (GUI).

Find more GRASS GIS Jupyter notebooks in the Wiki.

Try GRASS GIS as rollApp

Try GRASS GIS as rollapp

rollApp is a cloud platform for native applications. It allows to run over 300 apps directly in the web browser and can be connected to cloud storages like Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, or Box. GRASS GIS can be launched as a rollApp. Click on the screenshot to get to the launch site.

Note: You have to register (which is free) in order to launch a rollApp. Note that only minimal compute resources are available in rollApp.
