           List vector maps in input mapset and exit

           Assume z coordinate is ellipsoidal height and transform if possible
           3D vector maps only

           Disable wrapping to -180,180 for latlon output
           Latlon output only, default is -180,180

           Do not build vector topology
           Recommended for massive point projection

           Allow output files to overwrite existing files

           Mapset containing input vector map
           Default: name of current mapset

           Name of input vector map to re-project

           Name for output vector map (default: input)


       v.proj allows a user to convert a vector map in a specified mapset of a specified location
       (different  from current) with projection of input location to the vector map in a current
       mapset of current location with projection  of  current  location  (both  projections  are
       defined  by  corresponding  PROJ_INFO files). The projection information is taken from the
       current PROJ_INFO files, as set and viewed with g.proj.


       If output is not specified it is set to be the same as input map name.
       If mapset is not specified, its name is assumed to be the same  as  the  current  mapset’s
       If  dbase  is not specified it is assumed to be the current database. The user only has to
       specify dbase if the source location is stored in another separate GRASS database.
       If smax is set to 0 the automated vertex densification is disabled (not recommended).

       v.proj supports general datum transformations, making use of the PROJ.4 co-ordinate system
       translation library.

       When  projecting into a latlon location, east coordinates are wrapped by the proj4 library
       to fit into the range -180,180. This is in most cases appropriate, but  can  cause  errors
       the  input  vector  crosses  the  datum  line  at  180E/W.  In  this case wrapping of east
       coordinates to -180,180 needs to be disabled with the -w flag.

       When reprojecting massive point clouds for which topology is not necessary, the  user  can
       set the -b flag to suppress the building of topology of the output map.

       In order to preserve spatial detail, v.proj performs automated vertex densification (as an
       alternative, v.split could be used  before  reprojecting.  Without  vertex  densification,
       depending  on  the  source and target CRS (Coordinate Reference System), geometries can be
       substantially deformed (straight lines become curves, squares become trapezoids, etc). The
       densification of linear features can help to avoid topological errors.
