Cool idea.

Since GRASS is a global project, how about one of the first truly global like Mercator's of 1569 (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_cartography#/image/File:Mercator_1569.png) or Ortelius' of 1570 (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_cartography#/image/File:OrteliusWorldMap1570.jpg)?

Better images than these from Wikipedia probably exist.

With such a map, we could have a slightly different message on the splash screen too. Maybe something like

GRASS. Bringing advanced geospatial technologies to the world.


GRASS. Advanced geospatial technology for everyone.

Anyway. Those are a couple of ideas.

I'd suggest, in order to clearly distinguish G6 from G7, to replace
the current splash screen for the upcoming G7.0.0 release.
We may consider to get community contributions for this.

What do you think?
