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.


Have fun.
