I have a bunch of questions about the storage of information about mapset
projections/coordinate systems/datum in GRASS-5. Let me start with a few.
1.) When I used r.in.gdal to import a DEM, the PROJ_UNITS file contains
Can someone please interpret this for me? I assume that it means the units
are meters, but why this syntax?
2.) Considering the same data set, the DEFAULT_WIND file contains:
e-w resol: 30
n-s resol: 30
I assume that "proj: 1" indicates UTM (because the PROJ_INFO file says
so. But, where is the file that associates the number with the projection
name? I've looked all through /usr/local/grass5/etc and the other
directories there, but can't find it.
