OSU IPPC GRASSLinks 3.5beta: A web interface for GRASS GIS version 5.x

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.

  • Note (9/10/2014): the only still - supported project using GRASSLinks are USPEST.ORG Degree-Day maps; example projects shown below were partly broken due to server switch from 32- to 64-bit processing (raster layers OK vector layers broken). For example, click Willamette Valley example just below (Left side), and select only raster and site layers (no vectors), and map should be created.

    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.
