Creates a copy of a space time raster dataset.

t.copy --help
t.copy [-c] input=name  [type=name]  output=name  [--overwrite]  [--help]  [--verbose]  [--quiet]  [--ui]



Also copy maps of the space-time dataset
By default the old maps are only registered in the new dataset.


Allow output files to overwrite existing files

input=name [required]

Name of the input space time dataset


Type of the input space time dataset
Options: strds,  str3ds,  stvds
Default: strds

output=name [required]

Name of the output space time dataset


The purpose of t.copy is to create a copy of a space time dataset. The new space time dataset will be located in the current mapset, whereas the old space time dataset can be located in a different mapset as long as this mapset is in the search path.

If the -c flag is given, the maps of the old space time dataset will also be copied to the current mapset, otherwise the original maps will be simply registered in the temporal database. The new copies will have the same name as the old maps.


A fully qualified name for the input space-time dataset is only required if space-time datasets with the same name exist in different mapsets.


In the North Carolina sample dataset with the separately available mapset modis_lst included, copy the space-time raster dataset LST_Day_monthly@modis_lst to the current mapset user1:

g.mapsets mapset=modis_lst operation=add
t.copy input=LST_Day_monthly@modis_lst type=strds output=LST_Day_monthly
