NAME

       d.to.rast  - Saves the contents of the active display monitor to a raster map.

KEYWORDS

       display, export, raster

SYNOPSIS

       d.to.rast
       d.to.rast --help
       d.to.rast output=name  [--overwrite]  [--help]  [--verbose]  [--quiet]  [--ui]

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

       --help
           Print usage summary

       --verbose

       --quiet
           Quiet module output

       --ui
           Force launching GUI dialog

   Parameters:
       output=name [required]

DESCRIPTION

       d.to.rast  saves  the  content  of  the  currently selected monitor into a raster map. The
       active monitor can be selected with d.mon. d.to.rast can be run from GUI Console tab, too.
       This module is not sensitive to computational region settings.

EXAMPLE

       We combine different raster and vector map layers to create a composite layer which can be
       draped over elevation in 3D view.  First, we add a couple of maps to layer manager:
       g.region raster=elevation
       d.rast map=elevation
       d.rast map=lakes
       d.vect map=roadsmajor width=4
       d.vect map=roadsmajor width=2 color=yellow
       # create a raster map from the display
       d.to.rast output=composite

       Then uncheck all layers except for elevation and switch to 3D  view.   In  Data  tab,  set
       color map to the newly created composite map.
