Hello, dear GRASS users.

A few words about new ASTER GDEM version

As was explored, this DEM could be also rather well filtered and smoothed
with the Sun's denoising
<GDAL> and free / open source program <mdenoise>). Also there is
GRASS add-on r.denoise <http://grass.osgeo.org/wiki/GRASS_AddOns#r.denoise>.

Experiments showed that the best smoothing of ASTER GDEM 2 is reached with
such parameters of <mdenoise>:

threshold = 0.8
iterations = 10-20

Also filtering with <r.neighbors> by "average" method and window size >=5
is quite usefull to remove some noise from DEM.

With the best regards from Russia,
Alexander Muriy.
