Abstract:

The Geographic Resources Analysis Support System GRASS is a geographic information and image processing system originally designed to serve land managers and environment planners at Army installations. GRASS is written in C and operates on computers running UNIX. Since its initial development, GRASS has been used for many applications on a number of different hardware configurations. This Guide contains information to aid the user in configuring a hardware system that will support the implementation and use of GRASS software. Included are minimum hardware specifications that have been tested and are fully supported, and information on systems currently supported by an authorized GRASS support center that have successfully completed a beta test as outlined by the U.S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratory USACERL. Also included is information on peripheral and performance options compatible with GRASS hardware configuration, and a listing of GRASS support centers and the computer systems andor agencies that they support. This Guide is not meant as an endorsement of the products or tradenames listed within, but only as a reference for the user considering hardware upon which to run GRASS.
