GIS Support

  • GRASS lat/lon regions may be used as 0-360 longitude, not just 180 east+west.
  • In GRASS 6 you can set and add custom ellipsoids, see the g.setproj module. Permanently adding custom ellipsoids can be done by hand, the config tables for that are plain self-documenting text files, so reasonably easy to edit. An ellipse table with planetary spheroids (to put as $GISBASE/etc/*.table files) is available here.
  • GRASS 7 now includes the planetary ellipsoid tables and support is present in the wxGUI location wizard.
  • GRASS 7 now recognizes ISIS3.x installation and runs automatically the ISIS-GRASS bridge, Startup banner and CLI prompt are set to ISIS-GRASS. ISIS commands are available through the ISIS-GRASS command prompt.

Open Issues

  • r.out.gdal exports 'unknown' ellipsoids / datums, and also the reference meridian is named 'Greenwich'

Example of the use of GRASS GIS in Planetary Research

GRASS ps.map output as published in an article in the journal Science.

Modules

  • r.crater is an addon module for GRASS 7 which estimates the size of a gravity dominated impact crater, or alternatively works backwards to estimate the size of the projectile that made it.
  • d.anaglyph is an addon module for creating 3D stereo images. (see Stereoscopic analysis and Stereo anaglyphs wiki pages)
  • Isis2grass is a set of tools to make Isis > 3.3.1 and GRASS work together.
  • g.isis3mt: will output an ISIS3 Maptemplate according to the one currently used in the GRASS Location.
  • isis-grass: a startup script that will setup a common command line interface from which both ISIS3 and GRASS commands may be called.

these just define the simple reference ellipsoids, so dx=dy=dz=0.
GRASS currently uses the IAU2000 definitions in the ellipse.table.solar.system file.
