Local GRASS GIS community in Raleigh, North Carolina, USA is pleased to announce a successful meeting on Saturday December 19, 2015 dedicated to learning about how to contribute to GRASS GIS. The meeting took place at the inspiring James B. Hunt Jr. Library at the North Carolina State University Centennial Campus.
