GRASS GIS fund raising per Vienna Code Sprint 2014

Con molto piacere pubblico questa richiesta fondi per il prossimo GRASS GIS Code Sprint di Vienna
“Dear GRASS GIS Users,
In the occasion of the upcoming Vienna Code Sprint 2014 [1], the GRASS GIS Project Steering Committee decided to officially join this code sprint, considering the great opportunity for joint activities. More than 60+ developers from the most important OSGeo project communities will join the event.
While the GRASS developers are donating their valuable time, the community of enthusiast users may contribute with donations, even symbolic, that will be used to cover out-of-pocket expenses of the participants.
Companies can also decide to sponsor specific tasks! Please don’t hesitate to contact us for further details.
As usual, all of the work done in the community sprint will be directly contributed back to the GRASS project for the benefit of everyone who uses it. The scope is to publish a first release candidate of the stable GRASS GIS 6.4.4 version as well as a tech preview release of GRASS GIS 7. For further information don’t hesitate to contact Markus Neteler (

The GRASS Developers Team
The Geographic Resources Analysis Support System (, commonly referred to as GRASS GIS, is an Open Source Geographic Information System providing powerful raster, vector and geospatial processing capabilities in a single integrated software suite. GRASS GIS includes tools for spatial modeling, visualization of raster and vector data, management and analysis of geospatial data, and the processing of satellite and aerial  imagery. It also provides the capability to produce sophisticated presentation graphics and hardcopy maps. GRASS GIS has been translated into about twenty languages and supports a huge array of data formats. It can be used either as a stand-alone application or as backend for other software packages such as QGIS and R geostatistics. It is distributed freely under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL). GRASS GIS is a founding member of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo).

2013 in review

Anche quest’anno il team di WordPress ha inviato il suo “annual report”. Lo pubblico as is:

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 15,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Il Repertorio Nazionale dei Dati Territoriali

Oggi inserisco un post con il link al Repertorio Nazionale dei Dati Territoriali (RNDT). Attualmente questo strumento sta muovendo i primi passi, ma il desiderio è che entri a fare parte della “cassetta degli attrezzi” di ogni geomatico e, in prospettiva, di ogni cittadino italiano. Non sono solo, ma insieme a:”
