- http://grass.osgeo.org/gdp/grass5tutor/HTML_en/c626.html contains advice on setting up a directory structure for GRASS projects.
/data/ # as a shared directory for team projects with sysop managed group permissions # this shared directory may stay on a network server /data/grassdata # GRASS GIS database /data/grassdata/spearfish60 # a shared spearfish Location (think project) /data/grassdata/spearfish60/maria # a team member's working mapset /data/grassdata/spearfish60/david # another member's working mapset
For individual use, such a structure is not necessary. One will need a database, and GRASS can create Location and Mapset directories. Your default database/location/mapset may be stored in your .grass6rc file.
GRASS can be invoked with:
grass64 --help # print options grass64 # start with defaults from .grassrc6 grass64 /data/grassdata/spearfish/david # a specific mapset
