DESCRIPTION

       r.mode calculates the most frequently occurring value (i. e., mode) of data contained in a
       cover raster map layer for areas assigned the same category value  in  the  user-specified
       base raster map layer. These modes are stored in the new output map layer.

       The output map is actually a reclass of the base map.

       The  base  parameter  defines  an  existing  raster map layer in the user’s current mapset
       search path. For each group of cells assigned the same category value in the base map, the
       mode of the values assigned these cells in the cover map will be computed.

       The  cover parameter defines an existing raster map layer containing the values to be used
       to compute the mode within each category of the base map.

NOTES

       The user should use the results of r.mode with care.  Since this utility assigns  a  value
       to  each cell which is based on global information (i.e., information at spatial locations
       other than just the location of the cell itself), the resultant map layer is only valid if
       the  geographic  region  and  mask settings are the same as they were at the time that the
       result map was created.

       Results are affected by the current region settings and mask.

EXAMPLE

       Mode of K-factor (erosion) for Spearfish fields:
       g.region raster=fields -p
       r.mode base=fields cover=soils.Kfactor output=K.by.farm.mode
       r.univar K.by.farm.mode
