NAME

       v.type  - Changes type of vector features.

KEYWORDS

       vector, geometry, editing, area, line, point

SYNOPSIS

       v.type
       v.type --help
       v.type    input=name     [layer=string]    output=name   from_type=string   to_type=string
       [--overwrite]  [--help]  [--verbose]  [--quiet]  [--ui]

   Flags:
       --overwrite
           Allow output files to overwrite existing files

       --help
           Print usage summary

       --verbose
           Verbose module output

       --quiet
           Quiet module output

       --ui
           Force launching GUI dialog

   Parameters:
       input=name [required]
           Name of input vector map
           Or data source for direct OGR access

       layer=string
           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

       output=name [required]
           Name for output vector map

       from_type=string [required]
           Feature type to convert from
           Options: point, line, boundary, centroid, face, kernel
           Default: line

       to_type=string [required]
           Feature type to convert to
           Options: point, line, boundary, centroid, face, kernel
           Default: boundary

DESCRIPTION

       v.type changes the type of geometry primitives.

EXAMPLES

       Convert lines to area boundaries
       v.type input=map_l output=map_b from_type=line to_type=boundary
       In order to create areas, centroids must be added with v.centroids.

SEE ALSO

        v.centroids, v.to.points
