Nice package

I've used this and it's very good - good range of tools. There are a couple of things about the interface which could be improved

- you can add layers to the map (as in arcgis) but when you run a command you can't pick from the layers currently on the map - you have to open the file again from disk

- when you import data (e.g. from an arcgis ascii file) it doesn't tell you where it has saved it - I expected it to be added to the map but it isn't. since importing data is probably the first thing you do I found this a confusing start - and I am a pretty experienced software user - I wrestled with command-line ARC/INFO back in the day!
