NAME

       db.out.ogr  - Exports attribute tables into various formats.

KEYWORDS

       database, export, attribute table

SYNOPSIS

       db.out.ogr
       db.out.ogr --help
       db.out.ogr    input=name    output=name    [layer=string]    format=string    [table=name]
       [--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]
           GRASS table name
           Or data source for direct OGR access

       output=name [required]
           Output table file name or DB connection string

       layer=string
           Layer number or name
           Vector features can have category values in different layers. This  number  determines
           which layer to use. When used with direct OGR access this is the layer name.
           Default: 1

       format=string [required]
           Table format
           Options: CSV, DBF, GML, MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite
           Default: CSV

       table=name
           Name for output table (default: input name)

DESCRIPTION

       db.out.ogr exports GRASS GIS attribute tables into various formats as supported by the OGR
       driver on the local system (CSV, DBF, PostgreSQL, SQLite, MySQL, ODBC, etc.).

       The output parameter is used to define the output file name (if the path is  not  defined,
       the  module  will  attempt  to  write  to  the  current  directory). In case of a database
       connection as output, the connection string has to be specified.

       The layer parameter is needed  if  the  attribute  table  to  be  exported  is  linked  as
       non-default layer to a vector map.

EXAMPLES

   Export of GRASS GIS attribute table to a CSV table file (default format)
       db.out.ogr input=precip_30ynormals output=precip_30ynormals.csv

   Export of a GRASS GIS attribute table to a DBF table
       db.out.ogr input=precip_30ynormals output=precip_30ynormals.dbf format=DBF

   Export of GRASS GIS attribute table into a PostgreSQL table
       db.out.ogr input=precip_30ynormals \
               output="PG:host=localhost dbname=meteo user=neteler" \
                  format=PostgreSQL
       # verify
       echo "SELECT * FROM precip_30ynormals" | psql meteo
