GRASS GIS releases version 6.1.0
[DAY] [MONTH] 2006

This new release includes hundreds of new features and support for the
latest GIS data formats.

The Geographic Resources Analysis Support System (GRASS) is a Geographic
Information System (GIS) used for spatial modeling, visualization of both
raster and vector data, geospatial data management and analysis, processing
of satellite and aerial imagery, and production of sophisticated presentation
graphics and hardcopy maps. GRASS combines powerful raster, vector, and
geospatial processing engines into a single integrated software package.

The GRASS GIS project is developed under the terms of the GNU General
Public License (the GPL) by volunteers the world over. GRASS differs
from many other GIS software packages used in the professional world
in that it is developed and distributed by users for users; mostly
on a volunteer basis, in the open, and is given away for free. Emphasis
is placed on interoperability and unlimited access to data as well as
software flexibility and evolution rate (both added features and bug

GRASS is currently used around the world in academic and commercial
settings, as well as by many governmental agencies and environmental
consulting companies.
