Rick Watson, one of the leaders of the
Global Text Project, has expressed a need
for a geographic information system (GIS).
In addition, Rick wrote,
we need some volunteers who are
willing to investigate what open source
GISs are available, recommend a product
for us to adopt, install it on a server,
and help with setting up a data entry and
reporting interface. This could make an
excellent class project for someone
teaching in the data management area.
Anyone who is willing & able to help
should contact Rick at this address:
Commonly referred to as GRASS, this is a Geographic Information System
(GIS) used for geospatial data management and analysis, image
processing, graphics/maps production, spatial modeling, and
visualization. GRASS is currently used in academic and commercial
settings around the world, as well as by many governmental agencies and
environmental consulting companies.
