I second this point from Simon. Why is there no r.proj. v.proj works
nicely thankyou. But in a raster based GIS, surely r.proj is more
important - perhaps it is more difficult.
Dragging cell data out to ascii files and running PROJ.4 over them to go
from geog. to say, lcc, is a hell of a business. At present, it is easier
to import grass rasters into ArcInfo (which we fortunately have),
reproject, and take them back to grass. But that is also something of a
convoluted business. Likewise using an imagery rectification is not
something you want to do with hundreds of large rasters, which we and many

I have a crude version of r.proj that works just like v.proj, if there is enough
interest I will put it in moon.
