GRASS GIS is a general purpose Free and Open Source geographic information system (GIS) that offers raster, 3D raster and vector data processing support. Since the initial release of the version 7, in February 2015, GRASS GIS has also oficially incorporated a powerful support for time series (TGRASS). Through this, GRASS GIS became the first open source temporal GIS with comprehensive spatio-temporal analysis, processing and visualization capabilities. This functionality makes it easy to manage, analyse and visualize for example climatic data, vegetation index time series, harvest data or landuse changes over time.
