AbstractThe article discusses the use of Geographic Resources Analysis Support System (GRASS) software to analyze the costs of installation and maintenance of the cable system that will eventually be used for the European Multidisciplinary Seafloor Observatory (EMSO). GRASS is a free, open-source GIS capable of handling raster, topological vector, image processing and graphic data. The software has evolved into a powerful software suite with a wide range of applications in many different areas of scientific research. The cost function determines the cumulative cost of moving from one cell to another. Each cell provides information about the cost of traversing it. GRASS can use a special algorithm, called the 'knight's move,' which takes into account cells not immediately adjacent. In a recent CSIC study, the optimal path for the deployment of the cable being used in the GEOSTAR demonstration mission in the Gulf of Cadiz was found
