SierraMaps.com (TM) releases GRASS 5.0 beta 11 GIS for Mac OS X CD.
By simply double-clicking on the package, the state-of-the-art, open-source GRASS (Geographic Resources Analysis Support System), a complete GIS (geographic information system) will be installed in minutes. The CD installs and configures GRASS GIS with all of the programs and libraries required to run the graphical-user-interface within Mac OS Xis Aqua interface (XFree86 4.0.3, XAqua 0.5, Tcl/Tk libraries and applications, wish 8.0 and GRASS 5.0 beta 11), optionally GRASS GIS with a command-line interface.
The installation program also installs complete documentation (in both PDF and HTML formats), tutorials with sample data, and a mirror of the official GRASS web site. The only other complete competing GIS on the market fully-configured can cost more than US$20,000 and does not run on Macintoshes.
The CD comes with limited-technical support to help get a system up and running should the user experience any difficulty installing GRASS GIS. SierraMaps will no longer offer free tech support for installation of GRASS 5.0 for Mac OS X that we ported, because this CD prevents those questions.
