Introduction to GRASS GIS

This workshop introduces students to the powerful Geographic Resources Analysis Support System (GRASS) GIS software to manipulate raster and vector data, and will cover:

  • Using the graphical user interface and simple Bash scripts to automate many common geo-data processing tasks such as cropping and re-projecting images
  • How to script processes for complex geo-functions

This workshop assumes basic knowledge of the Bash command line and basic knowledge of GIS concepts (projection, buffer, overlay, etc.).

Participants will need a pre-installed Linux virtual machine in their own laptops to follow the workshop.

The course will be taught by YCRC’s Giuseppe Amatulli, Ph.D., Research Scientist in GeoComputation and Spatial Science.
