NAME

       v.delaunay   - Creates a Delaunay triangulation from an input vector map containing points
       or centroids.

KEYWORDS

       vector, geometry, triangulation

SYNOPSIS

       v.delaunay
       v.delaunay --help
       v.delaunay  [-rl]  input=name   [layer=string]    output=name    [--overwrite]    [--help]
       [--verbose]  [--quiet]  [--ui]

   Flags:
       -r
           Use only points in current region

       -l
           Output triangulation as a graph (lines), not areas

       --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]
           Name of input vector map
           Or data source for direct OGR access

       layer=string
           Layer number or name (’-1’ for all layers)
           A  single  vector  map  can  be  connected  to  multiple  database tables. This number
           determines which table to use. When used with direct OGR  access  this  is  the  layer
           name.
           Default: -1

       output=name [required]
           Name for output vector map

DESCRIPTION

       v.delaunay  uses  an existing vector points map (input) to create a Delaunay triangulation
       vector map (output).

       Delaunay triangulation example (red-yellow points are  the  data  points  from  which  the
       triangulation was generated):

EXAMPLE

       Commands  used with the North Carolina dataset to create the above figure (subset shown in
       figure).
       g.region n=220750 s=219950 w=638300 e=639000 -p
       v.delaunay input=elev_lid792_randpts output=elev_lid792_randpts_delaunay
