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.).

Registrants will be able to request an account on a cloud-based Linux virtual machine that can be reached via an SSH tunnel. Accounts are limited and will be distributed first come, first served.

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