Description

This module is designed to register the maps of several input space time datasets in a single output dataset. The datasets to merge can be either space time raster, 3D raster or vector datasets and must have the same temporal type (absolute or relative).

Existing space time datasets located in the current mapset can be specified as output as well. The maps from the input space time datasets will be added to the output.

Maps from the input space time datasets will be registered only once in the output space time dataset, hence the same maps can be registered in different input space time datasets.

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

In this example we will create two space time raster datasets and register two unique maps in each of it. Then we merge the two space time raster datasets together.

r.mapcalc expression="map1 = rand(0, 10)"  -s
r.mapcalc expression="map2 = rand(10, 20)" -s
t.create type=strds temporaltype=absolute \
         output=precipitation_daily_1 \
         title="Daily precipitation" \
         description="Test dataset with daily precipitation"
t.register -i type=raster input=precipitation_daily_1 \
           maps=map1,map2 start=2012-08-20 increment="1 days"
t.info precipitation_daily_1
