 Replying to [ticket:7 neteler]:
 > The Location wizard does not predefine the DB connection for new
 location which leads to problems with several modules (needs to generate
 MAPSET/VAR file). Probably we should predefine SQLite here.

 I agree. However, except for xy locations, all are created using g.proj.
 So this is an issue for g.proj. That is, the location wizard does not
 operate 'inside' a location where it could use GRASS commands to do this.

Commonly referred to as GRASS, this is a Geographic Information System (GIS) used for geospatial data management and analysis, image processing, graphics/maps production, spatial modeling, and visualization. GRASS is currently used in academic and commercial settings around the world, as well as by many governmental agencies and environmental consulting companies.
