Mapping software

Written by

Recently I did some research in mapping software. So far I found 2 reasonable packages that can be used in an automated fashion:

While GMT is probably the most extensive one, GRASS (for now) seems to be the most flexible from an automated standpoint.

The idea is to make a C++ application to spit out some maps with statistics on several things… the initial test will of course be earthquake maps, which seem to be the ‘hello world’ of mapping :)

Zarro Taags!
