I have tried a number of methods to import some USGS data (dem and dlg)
without success. I am beginning to think that I am missing a
significant step in the process. I am learning as I go along. Can the
data from the GeoData center at USGS be imported DIRECTLY into GRASS or
some other gis? or does it have to be processesed first?
For example, the 1:100,000 dlg's at the ftp site are described as ascii
files. GRASS v.in.dlg talks about ascii and bin dlg files. When I
issue the v.in.dlg, it just hangs.
I have been downloading the data and attempting various GRASS functions but
I get various errors (too various to remember right now). My major
question is what are the steps? and how could I learn/ read about it?
