GRASS 8 planning: ideas

For now just a brainstorming zone...

Raster library

  • organization of raster file storage layout: have one raster folder per map like for vector data or raster3D
  • maintain history as for vector maps
  • keep track of opened raster maps
  • Storage in tiles instead of by row (See Grass7/RasterLib)
  • Merge NULL file into main data array (See Grass7/RasterLib)
  • save more raster metadata like number of non-null cells, mean and stddev (see GDAL)

Vector library

  • keep track of opened vector maps
  • keep track of dblinks to not remove table connected to multiple vector maps
  • get rid of dbf as database backend
  • ...

Python library

GUI

  • review (again) startup window, setting database/location/mapset, initial (default) location
  • single window interface as an option (first step: moving code to controller classes and panels)
  • avoid the need for setting up path to packaged before imports (now we need to mix code and imports), e.g. grassgui package next to grass package
  • integrated Addon and GUI toolboxes
