The GRASS (Geographic Resources Analysis Support System) geographic information system is an open-source project that 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, along with the capability to produce sophisticated presentation graphics and hardcopy maps (think ESRI’s ARcView but not costing $20k). The new v6.1.0 adds a new graphical GIS manager and menu system and enhances the OpenGL API-based NVIZ visualization tool to display 3D vector data and voxel volumes and create on-the-fly MPEG animations.
