Since the first edition of Open Source GIS: A GRASS GIS Approach was
published in 2002, GRASS has undergone major improvements. This second
edition includes numerous updates related to the new development; its
text is based on the GRASS 5.3 version from December 2003. Besides
changes related to GRASS 5.3 enhancements, the introductory chapters
have been re-organized, providing more extensive information on import
of external data. Most of the improvements in technical accuracy and
clarity were based on valuable feedback from readers.

Open Source GIS: A GRASS GIS Approach, Second Edition, provides updated
information about the use of GRASS, including geospatial modeling with
raster, vector and site data, image processing, visualization, and
coupling with other open source tools for geostatistical analysis and
web applications. A brief introduction to programming within GRASS
encourages new development. The sample data set used throughout the book
has been updated and is available on the GRASS web site. This book also
includes links to sites where the GRASS software and on-line reference
manuals can be downloaded and additional applications can be viewed.

Open Source GIS: A GRASS GIS Approach, Second Edition is designed for a
professional audience, composed of researchers and practitioners in
government and industry. This book is also suitable as a secondary text
for graduate-level students in geomatics, computer science and geosciences.

2. Any GIS Users? (Geography, GIS > MySQL, etc.)

I'm working on a big geography project that led me to the GIS community at I would like to extract data from GIS files and import it into
MySQL tables.

Does anyone know how to do that? It sounds like you can do it with Microsoft
Excel, though I'm not sure how. Moreoever, I have Microsoft Works and spreadsheets, not Excel.

Also, I'd like to touch base with anyone who might have some knowledge of GIS
data sets. I need some advice on locating particular types of data.

GIS' forums appear to be dead, though it might just be the Memorial Day
weekend. Then again, it looks like high gas prices haven't stopped the
Dreamweaver forum!
