I am a new user, just discovered grass and OSGeo. My current interest is
accessing the files from NaturalEarthData, converting them into matlab
format, and, using octave to manipulate and/or plot.
I use Linux and Unix. Octave 3.4.0, Gnuplot, Grass 6.4.0. This
workstation has Ubuntu 10.04.
I downloaded the 10m-admin-0-countries.zip and
10m-admin-0-boundary-lines-land.zip files from NaturalEarthData.
I want to use grass to display some portion of the data.
Then, use r.out.mat to generate a octave compatible binary file.
I started looking at the manual, but, quickly became confused.
Is there a simple how to for what I want to do?
