Analysis in GRASS is almost always done in the raster format. Refer to the
following references:
	GRASS4.1 Users' Reference Manual - r.mapcalc entry (available online
	using g.manual). Pay special attention to the spatial operator.

	R.MAPCALC - An Algebra for GIS and Image Processing (available by
	ftp'ing - get /grass/grass4.1/documents/mapcalc-

	_Geographic Information Systems and Cartographic Modeling_ , 
	by C. Dana Tomlin (1990, Prentice-Hall) (although this book doesn't
	refer directly to GRASS, it is probably the definitive work on 
	raster-based GIS analysis).
