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)

Very nice and easy install of a great free GIS with image processing functions.

You can read about the current version at:

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!
