NAME

v.in.mapgen - Imports Mapgen or Matlab-ASCII vector maps into GRASS.

KEYWORDS

vector, import

SYNOPSIS

v.in.mapgen
v.in.mapgen --help
v.in.mapgen [-fz] input=name [output=name] [--overwrite] [--help] [--verbose] [--quiet] [--ui]

Flags:


Input map is in Matlab format

Create a 3D vector points map from 3 column Matlab data

Allow output files to overwrite existing files

Print usage summary

Verbose module output

Quiet module output

Force launching GUI dialog

Parameters:


Name of input file in Mapgen/Matlab format

Name for output vector map (omit for display to stdout)

DESCRIPTION

v.in.mapgen allows the user to import Mapgen or Matlab vector maps into GRASS.

NOTES

This module only imports data into vector lines.

The user can get coastline data in Mapgen or Matlab format from NOAA’s Coastline Extractor at http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/mgg/shorelines/shorelines.html.

Matlab vector line maps are simply a series of "x y" data points. Lines are separated by a row containing NaN NaN. Output from Matlab with this command:


save filename.txt arrayname -ASCII

The user can import 3D lines from Matlab by exporting a 3 column array and using the -z flag.
