**We are pleased to announce the publication of Tangible Modeling with Open Source GIS**
We are pleased to announce the publication of Tangible Modeling with Open Source GIS by Anna Petrasova, Brendan Harmon, Vaclav Petras, and Helena Mitasova researchers at North Carolina State University OSGeoREL. This book presents Tangible Landscape, a tangible geospatial modeling system powered by GRASS GIS. The book provides an overview of tangible interfaces, describes the design and implementation of Tangible Landscape, discusses methods of digital fabrication, and demonstrates applications including landscape management, trail planning, wildfire management, and coastal adaptation. Besides guides for building and using Tangible Landscape, the book contains descriptions of geospatial models implemented in GRASS GIS and their usage.
