   I used r.param.scale extensively; will learn r.neighbors.

   That's very true. However, when the analytical results need to be
presented to non-technical decision-makers (lawyers, regulators,
politicians) it's vital that the presentations be visually attractive. It
adds credibility to the analytical results and, like typeset docuements
rather than word processed ones, makes them more easily accepted.
