Thanks for your reply. Yes, as it turns out, the solution was so simple that I
didn't even bother to try it first. As you and others have pointed out, one
can work with these files directly, using nothing more than r.mapcalc to
convert them into full-blown cell files.
My only problem now (and maybe you have something to say about this as well),
is getting the files from lat/lon reference to UTM. In a ll-referenced
location, the file imports directly with r.mapcalc, and they look nice.
However, I need to register these files with data in UTM-referenced mapsets.
It would seem that r.in.ll would read these files and accomplish the task, but
I keep ending up with all missing data, just blank files. The approach seems
obvious, and so do the needed parameters, so I am not sure what is hanging
things up. Any words of wisdom? I'm wondering if stretching multiple
projection zones has anything to do with it (I am referencing from the
west-most zone of course), or if there is some other "little" thing like that
which is not so obviously a problem.
Comments are welcome. Thanks again for taking the time to reply.
