Re: [DebianGIS] Weighted Thiessen Polygons (XTENT Model)

I'm Geographer but I'm working in Archaeology in Greece. I'll ask Benjamin
Ducke if he could supply any tool for GRASS. If I find any grass module for
Xtent model then I would be happy to contribute in Quantitative Archaeology
Wiki or GRASS wiki. Thank you again for your suggestion.
