NAME

       v.what  - Queries a vector map at given locations.

KEYWORDS

       vector, querying, position

SYNOPSIS

       v.what
       v.what --help
       v.what          [-dagjm]          map=name[,name,...]          [layer=string[,string,...]]
       [type=string[,string,...]]     coordinates=east,north      [distance=float]       [--help]
       [--verbose]  [--quiet]  [--ui]

   Flags:
       -d
           Print topological information (debugging)

       -a
           Print attribute information

       -g
           Print the stats in shell script style

       -j
           Print the stats in JSON

       -m
           Print multiple features if overlapping features are found

       --help
           Print usage summary

       --verbose
           Verbose module output

       --quiet
           Quiet module output

       --ui
           Force launching GUI dialog

   Parameters:
       map=name[,name,...] [required]
           Name of vector map(s)

       layer=string[,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

       type=string[,string,...]
           Input feature type
           Options: point, line, boundary, centroid, area, face, kernel
           Default: point,line,area,face

       coordinates=east,north [required]
           Coordinates for query
           ’-’ for standard input

       distance=float
           Query threshold distance
           Default: 0

DESCRIPTION

       v.what  outputs the category number value(s) associated with user-specified location(s) in
       user-specified vector map layer(s).  This module was derived from the  d.what.vect  module
       by  removing  all  interactive code and modification of the output for easy parsing. Using
       the -g flag generates script-style output which is easily parsable.

EXAMPLE

       North Carolina sample dataset example:

       Query polygon at given position:
       v.what zipcodes_wake coordinates=637502.25,221744.25

       Find closest hospital to given position within given distance (search radius):
       v.what hospitals coordinates=542690.4,204802.7 distance=2000000
