Default: strds

Description

t.info reports information about any dataset that is registered in the temporal database in human readable or shell script style. Datasets are raster, 3D raster and vector maps as well as their corresponding space time datasets (STRDS, STR3DS and STVDS). This module reports the information that are stored in the temporal database. These are basic information (id, name, mapset, creator, creation time, temporal type), the temporal and spatial extent and dataset type specific metadata. The user has to utilize r.info, r3.info, v.info to report detailed information about raster, 3D raster and vector maps, since not all map specific information and metadata are stored in the temporal database.

In addition, information about the chosen temporal database backend can be reported.

Notes

Temporal databases stored in other mapsets can be used as long as they are in the user’s current mapset search path (managed with g.mapsets).

Examples

Temporal DBMI information

In order to obtain information about temporal DBMI backend, run:

t.info -s

The "granularity" is the smallest gap size between the found time instances, i.e. it the greatest common divisor between all gaps in the time series.
