Hi Daniel -
Isn't GRASS raster only? If so, are you thinking of that as one of several
If not, cool, but will that make some interesting vector data inaccessible?

I happen to be finishing up my GIS credentials and geography/cartography
right now and was thinking about playing around with
the free software
GIS program this summer. See http://grass.baylor.edu/
and the GRASS Wiki
It would be neat to tie GRASS into MediaWiki for map creation. I'll see if
can get that to work later this year (at least for
creating simple maps).
There is a whole bunch of public domain GIS data out there (mostly in the
U.S....). It would eventually be neat to have a place to do GIS editing on
Internet to help maintain and extend those data. As it
is, the public
GIS material created by the U.S. government is made
by GIS firms who clean up, extend, and then sell the
data. AFAIK there is
free content alternative.
WikiGIS perhaps? I better snag that one... Done. WikiGIS.org
are reserved for the Wikimedia Foundation if and when
the foundation wants
Which reminds me, Wikimedia.org
is about to expire... I better fix that.
