Hi Sören and Thomas

The last few days I explored a little bit the possibilities of the temporal GIS framework in GRASS 7.
I have to say, that I already now love it though I just have touched the surface of it possibilities!!! All who contributed to this development, thank you very much, you really did an amazing job! And I am really looking forward to the forthcoming improvements in the GSoC 2013 project!

The way I acquainted myself with the concept of the new tools was through Sörens presentation at the geostats course. What I would found really valuable would be a collection of more "real life examples", where and how the tools are used in practice and for different purposes. Is there already a wiki page (which I am not aware of) with examples like how to calculate Growing Degree Days, Drought periods (in the context of climate data) and stuff like that?

Hi all,
in my previous mail I forgot to introduce myself. My name is Thomas Leppelt and I'm a PhD student at the Thuenen-Institute in Germany. I'm working together with Soeren Gebbert, who is my mentor in our Google Summer of Code project 2013. Our aim for this summer is to develop a temporal algebra for raster and vector maps in GRASS. You can find some more details on the GSoC page:

It is the first time for me to develop software for an open source project. So I'm very curious and I hope that we can contribute a little piece of software in collaboration with the community.

Best regards
