Open Source Free Software GIS
GRASS users conference 2002
      Trento, Italy, 11-13 September 2002
                    Open Source Free Software GIS
                    GRASS users conference 2002


This conference is the result of the joint effort of many GRASS developers and
users all over the world to foster closer relations and provide opportunities for
greater interactions among the open GIS and GRASS communities.
The aim of the conference is twofold: the exchange of experiences between
Open Source and Free Software GIS and GRASS users and developers and the
possibility for the potential users to access first-hand information and GRASS
capability demonstration, especially for users from developing countries.

The conference is organized by the Department of Civil and Environmental
Engineering and CUDAM, Center for advanced studies on hydrogeological risk in
mountain areas, of the University of Trento with the help of an Organizing
Committee including some of the most prominent GIS/GRASS experts around
the world.

The papers included in the proceedings have been accepted on the basis of the
pertinence with the theme of the conference. All the accepted papers have been
included in the proceedings CD Rom as submitted by the authors. A selection of
papers will be published on TGIS (Transactions in GIS).
