This document describes how to acquire, install and configure a
powerful scientific public-domain Geographic Information System (GIS):
the Geographic Resources Analysis Support System (GRASS). It provides
information on other resources for learning more about GRASS, GIS in
general, for acquiring data, etc.
This document also encourages the Linux community to consider enhancing
this software as a major application of UNIX/Linux. ("When will Linux
become bundled with public domain or Linux Public License 'killer
apps'"?) For more on this topic, see Section 8 below.
