Hi Anthony.  Great to have another Grass user here in SA at last.  I
have been using Grass since 1992 on a Sun IPC platform here at Rhodes.
George Wells installed it for me and I am sure he would be able to
advise your sys admin staff.  His e-mail address is csgw at
We have a number of important layers in a lat-long projection for the
entire South Africa. These include mean annual rainfall, elevation (1.6
km grid), mean maximum temperature, mean minimum temperature, NOAA AVHRR
NDVI's, co-eefficient of variation in annual rainfall.  We also have
Landsat TM imagery and SPOT imagery georeferenced for many parts of SA.
As your e-mail adress was not provided on the user list, please send it
to me at plad at
Looking forward to hearing from you.
