Is it possible to embed the GRASS map display to a C# application? I know that a PNG image can suffice but to make the application more interactive it could perhaps be integrated. In essence I would just be re-skinning the GUI of grass and adding some simulation buttons etc.

While this may be possible to hack together, at some point you should ask why -- there are a number of C# GIS applications such as MapWindow, which is designed to be extensible. – scw Feb 21 '11 at 20:24
So this is quite a useless task to do compared to using a PNG image to display the information? – teamAngat Feb 22 '11 at 5:42
Better ask such specific questions on the GRASS developers list: – markusN Feb 22 '11 at 7:24

You might have better luck with Java than C#, as there's jGrass. (It may also be possible to still use jGrass from C# using IKVM, but that's entering Evil Mad Scientist territory.)
