           Default: default

       tiledimension=XxYxZ
           The dimensions of the tiles used  in  the  output  raster3d  map  (XxYxZ  or  default:
           16x16x8)
           Default: default

DESCRIPTION

       r3.in.ascii  allows  a user to create a (binary) GRASS 3D raster map layer from a 3D ASCII
       raster input file.

       The tiledimension parameter defines the dimension of the tiles used in  the  output  file.
       The format is: XxYxZ

       The  nv  parameter specifies which value to convert to NULL-value.  If the specified value
       is none, no conversion is performed.  Default is none.

NOTES

       The data is automatically imported into the correct internal coordinate  system,  that  is
       visualized  in  the  following  picture,  independently from the specified ordering in the
       ASCII input file:

       The volume coordinate system and tile layout of the imported
       voxel map

NOTES

       The format of the 3D ASCII file:
       version: "grass7"
       order:   "nsbt" or "nstb" or "snbt" or "sntb"
       north:   floating point
       south:   floating point
       east:    floating point
       west:    floating point
       top:     floating point
       bottom:  floating point
       rows:    integer
       cols:    integer
       levels:  integer
       The  version  and  order option have been introduced in GRASS 7 in June 2011.  The version
       option is self explaining. The order option specifies the row and depth order of the  data
       in  the  input  file.   The supported row/depth ordering is documented in the r3.out.ascii
       manual page. The order of the data in the input file does not specify the  data  order  in
       the  generated  output  3D  raster  map which is in any case north -> south, west -> east,
       bottom -> top order.  So dependent on the order  information  the  data  is  automatically
       imported into the correct internal coordinate system.

       The  version  and  order options are not mandatory. In case no version and order option is
       specified, the default GRASS 6 ASCII format is assumed.

       This header is followed by the cell values in floating point format organized in rows with
       constant  col  and level coordinate.  The rows are organized by constant level coordinate.
       Individual cell values are separated by space or CR.

EXAMPLES

       4x3x2 sample. Note in case no specific  ordering  is  specified  in  the  input  file  the
       upper-left  (NW)  corner  of  the bottom level comes first. The according order option is:
       nsbt for north -> south, bottom -> top ordering. This is  identical  with  r.in.ascii  for
       single level data. So the y coordinate is 0 at the northern edge.  north: 3.0
       south: 0.0
       east: 4.0
       west: 0.0
       top: 2.0
       bottom: 0.0
       rows: 3
       cols: 4
       levels: 2
       w111x1,y1,z1  w211x2,y1,z1  w311x3,y1,z1  w411x4,y1,z1
       w121x1,y2,z1  w221x2,y2,z1  w321x3,y2,z1  w421x4,y2,z1
       w131x1,y3,z1  w231x2,y3,z1  w331x3,y3,z1  w431x4,y3,z1
       w112x1,y1,z2  w212x2,y1,z2  w312x3,y1,z2  w412x4,y1,z2
       w122x1,y2,z2  w222x2,y2,z2  w322x3,y2,z2  w422x4,y2,z2
       w132x1,y3,z2  w232x2,y3,z2  w332x3,y3,z2  w432x4,y3,z2

       Note  that  unit  tests for r3.in.ascii are implemented in the test.r3.out.ascii.sh script
       located in the r3.out.ascii directory.
