I am not familiar with 2met / vcs / .xtif, but in general GRASS will handle any raster binary format which is known to GDAL:


So a first step is to run "gdalinfo filename.xtif" and see if it can recognize it. I might guess that ".xtif" could mean "extended tiff", so it might be a GeoTiff with some extra metadata giving instructions on how to proceed.
