GRASS Google Summer of Code 2015



Post your ideas here or to the grass-dev mailing list if you want to discuss them more. To edit this wiki, you need to login with an OSGeo Userid; read also some help for using trac.

You are invited as well to have a close look at (and re-suggest!) ideas from previous years (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014) which have not yet been implemented. You can also look at accepted GRASS GSoC projects from previous years for an idea of scope.

Some bigger ideas may have their own pages, so you can link them here. The pages can be either independent if the page already exists (e.g. wxGUIDevelopment/SingleWindow), or more preferably supbages of this page if the idea is (re-)developed for this GSoC. In the later case, use the word "idea" in the page name to distinguish the idea page (e.g. GSoC/2015/CoolGRASSProjectIdea) from the possible student project page (e.g. GSoC/2015/CoolGRASSProject).
