GRASS GIS 7 at a glance
GRASS GIS (Geographic Resources Analysis Support System), version 7 is the response to the rapidly increasing demand for robust and modern free analysis tools.
GRASS GIS 7 offers a number of new modules for vector network analysis, image processing, voxel analyse, time series processing (raster, vector, voxel) and an improved graphical user interface. GRASS GIS 7 provides a new Python interface that enables users in a simple way to create new powerful and efficient applications. The graphical user interface has been enriched with new tools for the animation of raster and vector maps time series, an improved georectifier, a new tool for supervised image classification, a "map swiper " for interactive comparison of two maps (eg for disaster management), and a tool for visual time series management
Moreover, the topological vector library has been improved with respect to the support of large files. SQLite is now default database driver. Furthermore, there are a number of new analysis capabilities and also support for massive data analysis. Additionally, projections other planets than for Earth are now supported. Many modules have been significantly optimized in terms of speed.
