[sample geodata for use with tutorials etc]

If would be helpful if for GRASS the Spearfish and Spearfish Imagery
datasets were included (rather small: <20mb?) and the North Carolina
sample dataset was included. And the Slovakia 3D rainfall dataset
if there is room.

There is also a common-format version of the NC dataset in
shape/geotiff format.

these form the basis of most examples and tutorials in grass.


it would also be nice to include some example LIDAR data, either
in raw ascii x,y,z text file (bzipped?) or if libLAS is included
on the liveDVD then in the smaller (binary) LAS format. (suggest
North Carolina dataset for that)

and whatever global datasets will fit (etopo2, etc)

and of course the climate change dataset mentioned on the
conference workshops & tutorials webpage. (more workshop &
tutorial data requirements will be known when the list of 
conference workshops & tutorials is published)
