GRASS GIS Extensions

pd-GRASS: Parallel Display for GRASS GIS

pd-GRASS is a set of shell scripts that allow to distribute display functions of GRASS GIS through the network among several physical monitors in a synchronized manner.

pd-GRASS was developed for the use on visualization clusters and display walls (like this). Typically such system consists of several rendering nodes and a head node. Each rendering nodes is connected to one or more physical display devices and all nodes are controlled from the head node (more info). All functionality of pd-GRASS is available for test runs on a local computer (screenshot).
