About this book

With this third edition of Open Source GIS: A GRASS GIS Approach, we enter the new era of GRASS6, the first release that includes a substantial new code developed by the International GRASS Development Team. The dramatic growth in open source software libraries has made the GRASS6 development more efficient, and has enhanced GRASS interoperability with a wide range of open source and proprietary geospatial tools.

Thoroughly updated with new material relating to the new GRASS6, the third edition includes new sections covering database management working with attributes and SQL, reflecting the substantial extension of GRASS capabilities for managing attributes stored in various database systems. The new edition also provides an overview of the new graphical user interfaces that users can choose when working with GRASS.

Open Source GIS: A GRASS GIS Approach (third edition) preserves the continuity of previous editions by keeping most of the book's structure unchanged, and continues to target a professional audience composed of researchers and practitioners in government and industry.
