Good question! The space-time field is developing so fast that it seems
helpful to encourage contacts between all working on issues of
representation and implementation, as well as analysis like Cressie &
Wikle (2011). This may make it easier later on, when users get confused
about things not integrating well. Your GRASS work using Python may give
ideas to others using Python, for example. It would be great, looking
forward, for the R spacetime package to integrate well with the GRASS
temporal implementation and anything that might emerge from ESRI, and for
example Terralib. Does that make sense?
