I am working with the Global Ecosystems Database and have moved some of
the raster data into GRASS files.  However, I do not yet see how to
convert the  'Micro World Data Bank II' vector files into GRASS vector
files.   My main problem is that I don't see where to 'tell' GRASS that 
this vector data will be in lat/lon minutes.  Has anyone gone this route?
Reply or contact me directly, please.
