Part of the The Kluwer International Series in Engineering and Computer Science book series (SECS, volume 689)


In this chapter we explain the practical use of GRASS using examples in the area of natural resources. First, we illustrate simple modeling using a data set originally distributed with GRASS. More complex application is included in the section focused on land use management. To save space, we use command line mode throughout this chapter however, the same tasks can be performed by accessing the commands using the TclTk interface or an interactive mode (see Chapter 4).
