DESCRIPTION

       t.vect.export exports a space time vector dataset (stvds) to a tar archive as  either  GML
       (using  v.out.ogr)  or  GRASS  pack  files.  In addition to the pack or GML files, several
       metadata files are also created in the archive that describe the temporal layout. All time
       stamps  are  stored in the file "list.txt", for each map one row. The name of the map, the
       start time and the end time are written. In case of a time instance,  the  start  time  is
       equal  to  the end time. The "init.txt" file stores the temporal type, the number of maps,
       the chosen export  format  and  some  other  metadata.  The  "proj.txt"  file  stores  the
       projection information as a proj4 string of the location the space time vector dataset was
       exported from. The file "readme.txt" describes the file format. The output of  v.info  for
       each vector map in the space time dataset is stored in "metadata.txt".

       The  tar archive can be compressed using the compress option. Gzip and bzip2 (default) are
       available. A where option can be specified, to export only a  subset  of  the  space  time
       dataset. Archives exported with t.vect.export can be imported with t.vect.import.

NOTES

       The  name of output file has to carry the suffix of the archive type, the following suffix
       can be used:

           ·   .tar in the case of compress=no

           ·   .tar.bzip2 in the case of compress=bzip2

           ·   .tar.gzip in the case of compress=gzip

EXAMPLE

       In this example, five vector maps are created and registered in a single space time vector
       dataset  named  random_locations.   Each vector map represents random locations within the
       boundary of the state taken at 1 month intervals.
