I have downloaded GRASS 5 for Linux. The GRASS server was very busy so I did not finish that tonight. I did install ArcExplorer on my ThinkPad and opened some old school work map of Ottawa complete with community centre catchment areas. This data belongs to the Ottawa-Carleton Social Planning Council.
I used Linux to access my schools connect portal. I am not done with Linux yet tonight.
I am reading a book on GIS and the Law. I read the introduction and first chapter so far. This book is by George Cho a professor of geography and law in Australia.
