GRASSLinks is a World Wide Web interface to a geographic information system (GIS), offering public access to mapped information. This is an update of GRASSLinks 3.2 and includes multi-resolution display and other updates since the earlier versions. We will try to make installation easier than prior versions. See also the page gl.html which includes only the two GRASS (global and Spearfish) datasets.

GRASSLinks was originally developed from 1994-98 by Dr. Susan Huse at the Research Program in Environmental Planning and GIS
(REGIS), at the University of California, Berkeley. This is claimed to be the first fully funcional online
GIS package offering public domain access to environmental and geographical data.
GRASSLinks is based on the Open Source GIS software GRASS, orig. from the US Army Corps of Engineers.
