Abstract

Visual analysis and communication based on graphical output is a core component of GIS. Graphical representation of georeferenced data and creation of cartographic models provides important means for understanding and communicating complex spatial relationships. GRASS includes a wide range of graphical tools from simple two-dimensional display to sophisticated visualization and animation.
