Press release

The GRASS GIS Development team has announced the release of the new
major version GRASS GIS 7.0.0. This version provides many new
functionalities including spatio-temporal database support, image
segmentation, estimation of evapotranspiration and emissivity from
satellite imagery, automatic line vertex densification during
reprojection, more LIDAR support and a strongly improved graphical
user interface experience. GRASS GIS 7.0.0 also offers significantly
improved performance for many raster and vector modules: "Many
processes that would take hours now take less than a minute, even on
my small laptop!" explains Markus Neteler, the coordinator of the
development team composed of academics and GIS professionals from
around the world. The software is available for Linux, MS-Windows, Mac
OSX and other operating systems.

Detailed announcement and software download:



The Geographic Resources Analysis Support System
(http://grass.osgeo.org/), commonly referred to as GRASS GIS, is an
Open Source Geographic Information System providing powerful raster,
vector and geospatial processing capabilities in a single integrated
software suite. GRASS GIS includes tools for spatial modeling,
visualization of raster and vector data, management and analysis of
geospatial data, and the processing of satellite and aerial imagery.
It also provides the capability to produce sophisticated presentation
graphics and hardcopy maps. GRASS GIS has been translated into about
twenty languages and supports a huge array of data formats. It can be
used either as a stand-alone application or as backend for other
software packages such as QGIS and R geostatistics. It is distributed
freely under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL). GRASS
GIS is a founding member of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation
