JGrass - A Free Open Source GIS Dedicated To Hydro Geomorphology
Entry ID: JGrass

[ Get Service ]
[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: JGrass is a free, multi platform, open source GIS based on the famous GIS Grass, developed in Java by CUDAM, Hydrologis and ICENS.

Currently JGrass is dedicated mostly to hydrological and geomophological analyses. This is due to the fact that the main sponsors of the project are the CUDAM and Hydrologis. The involved University department and the tutorship of Riccardo Rigon makes JGrass a very complete piece of software to deal with environmental issues in the field of Hydrology and Morphology.

The first JGrass Architecture was conceived by the JGRASS architects (mostly John Preston, Andrea Antonello, Riccardo Rigon), and developed by the JGrass DeveloperGroup.
