An informal poll of the grad students in my lab this morning. All said “Wow”. Very professional!

I like the idea of GRASS morphing into a map of some kind. Also like Vaclav’s tweaks to make the start up a little easier to navigate—2 list choice controls with relevant buttons next to them and simplified text.

A second proposal for splash screen and welcome banner (adapted to dark
backgrounds) you can pick there :

The carex image is in the public domain

Fonts are free (see previous post for Exljbris Fontin) or OFL (for the
exquisite EB Garamond by Georg Duffner).

Those who wish to trim things on the source file, feel free to ask...
especially for colors tweaking ;-)

Thanks for your efforts!
Do you see a chance to morph the true grass into a map (from left to
right or so)?

IMHO we need to somehow communicate that spatial data are involved.
