I recently finished my PhD thesis on 'Three-dimensional Rule-based
Continuous Soil Modelling', and I've made it available over the web at
URL http://www.informatik.uni-kiel.de/~ma/trcs/thesis.html. This page
contains an abstract and pointers to postscript versions of the
I thought that maybe the GRASS community might be interested in this
work since GRASS is an integral part of the soil modelling program I
wrote, and also since soil inventory seems to be a field where GRASS
is widely used.
The program is not at the moment suitable for distribution, but I
intend to change this in the near future. I therefore very much
welcome feedback from everybody who's interested in this program so I
can decide what features are needed to make the thing useful.
Currently, my modelling system consists of a number of separate
programs, and using it is a bit like using GRASS, with one or two new
windows thrown in. Soem of the programs cooperate using the PVM
library (an RPC-based 'toolbox' for process communication).
My first step will probably be to organize all the interfaces and
control files into a 'command center' interface with the help of
Tcl/Tk. On the other hand, since good old UNIX GRASS seems to be
replaced by Windows-based Grasslands, maybe I should use something
else? Suggestions welcome.
