GRASS continues to grow in archaeology

It is fascinating to see how GRASS is holding its own against the major player ESRI. With the price point of ArcMap out of this world GRASS is continuing to be a great tool for archaeologists and other earth scientists.

GRASS 6.0 now out (Linux, Mac, Windows)

Really interesting. I'm an archaeologist working in Spain and up to now, because of the price of Arcview hadn't tried any GIS system, but certainly this is a step forward and should be implemented and supported.

This is excellent! I wish there were more stories and examples on the web for using GRASS, especially now in 2003 with ArcView taking over the market!

Linux is being used to deploy business applications and databases, trading on its reputation as a low-cost operating environment. For many IT organizations, Linux is a mainstay for deploying Web servers and has evolved from handling basic file, print, and utility workloads to running mission-critical applications and databases, physically, virtually, and in the cloud. As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

White Paper
Private PaaS for the Agile Enterprise

If you already use virtualized infrastructure, you are well on your way to leveraging the power of the cloud. Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale? In today’s hypercompetitive markets, fast results can make a difference between leading the pack vs. obsolescence. Organizations need more benefits from cloud computing than just raw resources. They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
