Description:

With this third edition of Open Source GIS: A GRASS GIS Approach, we enter the new era of GRASS6, the first release that includes 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 material related to the GRASS 6, the third edition includes new sections on attribute database management and SQL support, vector networks analysis, lidar data processing and new graphical user interfaces. All chapters were updated with numerous practical examples using the first release of a comprehensive, state-of-the-art geospatial data set.

Open Source GIS: A GRASS GIS Approach (third edition) preserves the continuity of previous editions by maintaining the proven book's structure and continues to target professional audience composed of researchers and practitioners in government and industry as well as graduate students interested in geospatial analysis and modeling.

Written for:

Professionals, researchers and practitioners, graduate students
