## Revision as of 08:57, 4 October 2007

**Q:** How do I enjoy high quality statistic analysis in GRASS?

**A:** Well, GRASS has got an interface to the most powerful statistics analysis package around: * R* (http://www.r-project.org)

First of all you need to add * R* to your system, the

*version must be >= 1.9.1:*

**R****Debian GNU/Linux**user, see: http://cran.r-project.org/bin/linux/debian/README**Ubuntu Linux**see: http://cran.r-project.org/bin/linux/ubuntu/README**RedHat, Suse, Mandrake**and similar distros: take the latestRPM and install it**R**

Once you have * R* in your system, take a look at http://grass.itc.it/statsgrass/grass_r_install.html.

### Quick start

For the impatient just start it:

> R #and install packages directly from the net pkgs <- c('akima', 'spgrass6', 'RODBC', 'VR') install.packages(pkgs, dependencies=TRUE, type='source')

### Notes

- All the necessary functions for the GRASS 6 interface are now in packages on CRAN, so that on Linux/Unix (or Mac OSX) installing rgdal from source with PROJ4 and GDAL installed, or Windows installing from binary, the required packages are: sp; maptools (now includes spmaptools); rgdal (now includes spGDAL, spproj); spgrass6 - now all on CRAN.

- Using R and GRASS with cygwin: It is possible to use Rterm inside the GRASS shell in cygwin, just as in Unix/Linux or OSX. You should not, however, start Rterm from a cygwin xterm, because Rterm is not expecting to be run in an xterm under Windows, and loses its input. If you use the regular cygwin bash shell, but need to start display windows, start X from within GRASS with startx &, and then start Rterm in the same cygwin shell, not in the xterm.

- Spatial data in R (
`sp`

) is alibrary that provides classes and methods for spatial data (points, lines, polygons, grids), and to new or existing spatial statistics**R**packages that use sp, depend on sp, or will become dependent on**R**`sp`

, such as`maptools`

,`rgdal`

,`splancs`

,,`spgrass6`

`gstat`

,`spgwr`

and many others.
