SYNOPSIS

       d.vect
       d.vect --help

   Flags:
       -c
           Random colors according to category number (or layer number if ’layer=-1’ is given)

       -i
           Use values from ’cats’ option as feature id

       -r
           Use square root of the value of size_column
           This  makes  circle  areas  proportionate  to the size_column values instead of circle
           radius

DESCRIPTION

       d.vect displays vector maps in the active frame on the graphics monitor.

NOTES

       d.vect can simply be used typing d.vect map=vector_map.  There  are  a  large  variety  of
       optional  parameters which allow the user to specify vector type, colors, data fields, SQL
       queries, label size and justification, etc.

       By default d.vect areas are filled with fill_color and outlined with color. Area  outlines
       can be suppressed with
       d.vect map=vector_map color=none
       and areas can be made transparent with
       d.vect map=vector_map fill_color=none

       In order to display attributes in the map, attribute_column must be specified.

       Feature  colors  may  be specified by v.colors in a form of color table or in an attribute
       table column containing RRR:GGG:BBB values.

       A table for a vector map might look like this:
       db.select sql="select * from testisola"
       cat|label|GRASSRGB
       0|no data|255:255:255
       90|FRASSILONGO|23:245:67
       104|LEVICO|23:145:67
       139|PERGINE VALSUGANA|223:45:237
       168|SANT’ORSOLA|223:45:67
       190|TENNA|123:45:67

       To add the GRASSRGB color column, use v.db.addcolumn:
       v.db.addcolumn map=testisola columns="GRASSRGB varchar(11)"

       To add/change a color, use v.db.update:
       v.db.update map=testisola column=GRASSRGB value="123:45:237" where="cat=139"

       A much simpler method of color coding is by  using  the  -c  flag  which  displays  vector
       elements of like category number with a random color.

       This  module  can  use  FreeType/TrueType  fonts  if  they have already been selected with
       d.font.

       Parameter width is set by default to ’0’. XDRIVER  specifies  the  precise  behaviour  for
       non-zero line width, but drivers have some freedom as to how zero-width lines are handled,
       so they can use the hardware’s "thin line" drawing primitive, if it has one.  A  width  of
       zero  can  potentially result in significantly faster operation. On drivers where there is
       no such thing as a "thin" line, the driver will use a sensible default (which might not be
       the same as ’1’).

EXAMPLES

       Spearfish examples:
       # display roads with category numbers:
       d.vect map=roads display=shape,cat label_color=green
       # display randomly colorized soils map with attributes
       d.vect -c map=soils attribute_column=label
       # display randomly colorized selected vectors from soils map
       d.vect -c map=soils where="label=’VBF’" display=shape attribute_column=label

       3D  points,  3D  lines  and  3D polygons colorized according to z height (for 3D lines and
       polygons a z height is computed by a midpoint of line/area bounding box):
       g.region raster=elevation.10m
       r.random input=elevation.10m n=5000 vector=random3d -d
       d.mon start=x0
       # display as black points
