[OSGeo Africa] Potential Solar Radiation

To be honest, I have no idea how the extension in ARCGIS works. It is part of the spatial analysis package. I will read up on the r.sun thanks.
I think I've found the problem with the aspect. When I created the DEM, I just imported the vector line data. Someone told me that when they make the DEM in ARCGIS, they use line and point data. I have both, how to I use both to create the DEM in with GRASS?
Thanks for the reply :)

I didn't reply yesterday because I was hoping that someone with more knowledge than I have, would.
I need some clarification before I can possibly help you.
1. What do you mean by 'make a radiation map'? What is the original data source? I know of some people who have gotten irradiation data for the whole of Africa off the Internet and then it's just a question of displaying it.
Or is this also something that you are using your DEM for? Then I would look at GRASS GIS's r.sun function - http://grass.osgeo.org/grass64/manuals/r.sun.html.
2. In my limited experience with creating DEMs it looks like your DEM has a hole at the top and that is why your slope map does as well. I think this has to do with defining soft and hard break lines when the DEM is generated. What procedure did you follow to create your DEM from the 5m contours?
