I got grass going, can use the spearfish sample data, but that's all I'm
I got some Tiger CDs from our Lib, tried importing tham, was asked for a
type 1, then a type 2. The files on the CD only seem to be in one
format, with a .tgf* (*= #) extension as I recall. Couldn't get any
of the tiger related progs to work on them.
I went to a USGS ftp server, and got .dem and .dlg files, for the same
region, all at 1:250k. Tried v.import, v.in.dlg v.dem.examine, & a
couple others I can't recall.
Was told to run g.region - default region not set, understandable.
But it's difficult to determine the coordinates by opening the files I
I poured through g.manual for a couple of days before I posted,
the time has come, I am at a loss ;)
Are there servers someone could post with data that can be accepted ?
Am I just inept ?
(I uploaded that libcurses.so.1 to the grass FTP site to make life a
little easier for linux weenies)
