I want to be able to zoom in on any part of a map and see the character-
istics of that area without much time and effort.  Is GRASS capable of

I have the spearfish database and the global database.  Where might I 
find more GRASS data?  Also, is there an easy to follow tutorial for 
beginning GRASS users?  Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
