4th GRASS GIS Community Sprint in Prague: Exciting achievements!
The GRASS GIS community is delighted to present the outcome of the 4th Community Sprint that took place in a warm and sunny Prague, Czech Republic, from July 12 to July 18, 2013. The event happened after the Geoinformatics conference
at the Czech Technical University in Prague. The Community Sprint was
once more a creative gathering of both long-term and new developers, as
well as users.
We wish to cordially thank the Department of Mapping and Cartography, Faculty of Civil Engineering, Czech Technical University in Prague for hosting and technical support. In particular, we gratefully acknowledge our association sponsors OSGeo and FOSSGIS e.V., and many individual donors: Peter
Löwe, Andrea Borruso, Massimo Di Stefano, Alessandro Sarretta, Joshua
Campbell, Andreas Neumann, Jon Eiriksson, Luca Casagrande, Karyn O
Newcomb, Holger Naumann, Anne Ghisla, Helena Mitasova and Lubos Mitas,

to help reducing travelling and accommodation expenses for participants
with far arrival who came on own expenses.
Developers and users who joined the event came from various countries like Italy, Czech Republic, Slovak Republic, Poland, Sri Lanka/France, USA and Germany.
