           defined in current location (if available)

       -f
           Output frame coordinates of current display monitor (percentage)

   Parameters:
       at=x,y[,x,y,...]
           Display coordinates to convert

       input=name
           File from which to read coordinates ("-" to read from stdin)

DESCRIPTION

       d.where is an interactive program that allows the user, using the pointing device (mouse),
       to  identify the geographic coordinates associated with point locations within the current
       geographic region in the active display frame on the graphics monitor.

       Each mouse click will output the easting and  northing  of  the  point  currently  located
       beneath the mouse pointer.  A mouse-button menu is presented so the user knows which mouse
       buttons to use. The output is always printed to the terminal  screen;  if  the  output  is
       redirected into a file, it will be written to the file as well.

       Mouse buttons:
            Left:   where am i
            Middle: draw to/from here
            Right:  quit this
       The  left  mouse  button  prints  the  coordinates at the selected point, the middle mouse
       button allows you to query two points (they are connected by a line for convenience).  Use
       the right mouse button to exit the module.

NOTES

       This  program  uses  the  current  geographic  region setting and active frame.  It is not
       necessary, although useful, to have displayed a map in the current  frame  before  running
       d.where.  The  -d flag allows the user to optionally output latitude/longitude coordinates
       pair(s) in decimal degree rather than DD:MM:SS format. The -w flag  is  only  valid  if  a
       datum  is  defined  for  the  current  location.   If  the  -f flag is given the x,y frame
       coordinates of the active display monitor will be returned (as a percentage, 0,0 is bottom
       left).

EXAMPLE

       Query position in map (North Carolina sample dataset):
       d.rast elevation
       d.where
