Description

d.to.rast saves the content of the currently selected monitor into a raster map. The active monitor can be selected with d.mon. d.to.rast can be run from GUI command console, too. This module is not sensitive to computational region settings.

Example

We combine different raster and vector map layers to create a composite layer which can be draped over elevation in 3D view. First, we add a couple of maps to layer manager:

g.region raster=elevation
d.rast map=elevation
d.rast map=lakes
d.vect map=roadsmajor width=4
d.vect map=roadsmajor width=2 color=yellow
# create a raster map from the display
d.to.rast output=composite

Then uncheck all layers except for elevation and switch to 3D view. In Data tab, set color map to the newly created composite map.
