|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.

GRASS accepts the following format for lat/lon coordinates:
where ddd is the degress, mm is minutes and ss is seconds. H is
the hemisphere (N, S, E, W). For example to specify the latitude
at 5 minutes 15 seconds north of the equator:
