v.delaunay(1grass) GRASS GIS User's Manual v.delaunay(1grass)

NAME

v.delaunay - Creates a Delaunay triangulation from an input vector map containing points or centroids.

KEYWORDS

vector, geometry, triangulation

SYNOPSIS

v.delaunay
v.delaunay --help
v.delaunay [-rl] input=name [layer=string] output=name [--overwrite] [--help] [--verbose] [--quiet] [--ui]

Flags:


Use only points in current region

Output triangulation as a graph (lines), not areas

Allow output files to overwrite existing files

Print usage summary

Verbose module output

Quiet module output

Force launching GUI dialog

Parameters:


Name of input vector map
Or data source for direct OGR access

Layer number or name (’-1’ for all layers)
A single vector map can be connected to multiple database tables. This number determines which table to use. When used with direct OGR access this is the layer name.
Default: -1

Name for output vector map

DESCRIPTION

v.delaunay uses an existing vector points map (input) to create a Delaunay triangulation vector map (output).

Delaunay triangulation example (red-yellow points are the data points from which the triangulation was generated):

EXAMPLE

Commands used with the North Carolina dataset to create the above figure (subset shown in figure).

g.region n=220750 s=219950 w=638300 e=639000 -p
v.delaunay input=elev_lid792_randpts output=elev_lid792_randpts_delaunay
