Apply Now for New Mentoring Program

GRASS GIS mentoring

The GRASS GIS project is launching a new mentoring program to help students, researchers, and software developers integrate GRASS GIS into their projects. Mentoring will be provided free of charge by experienced GRASS developers in a one-on-one setting allowing for remote and asynchronous communication. Mentors will work with participants to select the most appropriate and efficient tools and techniques to run and integrate GRASS tools into the participants’ workflow and provide advice and feedback during the implementation.

The use cases include (but are not limited to):

  • developing workflow that uses GRASS GIS e.g., through Python, Bash, R API,
  • contributing a research tool for GRASS GIS in Python, C, or C++,
  • running GRASS GIS on a high-performance cluster,
  • integrating GRASS GIS in another software.

The program is open to people from all walks of life regardless of employment or student status. Applicants and projects on beginner technical level are welcome.

Interested? To apply, follow the directions on the Mentoring Program wiki.
