Description

t.rast.export exports a space time raster dataset (strds) as a tar archive. The archive contains the raster maps either as GeoTIFF files or as GRASS binary files exported using r.pack. The map specific color tables are exported in case of GeoTIFF files. In addition several metadata files are created in the archive that describe the temporal layout. All time stamps are stored in the file "list.txt". For each map one row. The name of the map, the start time and the end time are written. In case of a time instance, the start time is equal to the end time. The "init.txt" files stores the temporal type, the number of maps, the chosen export format and some other metadata. The "proj.txt" files stores the projection information as proj4 string of the location the space time raster dataset was exported from. The file "readme.txt" describes the file format. The output of r.info is stored in "metadata.txt".

The tar archive can be compressed using the compress option. Gzip and bzip2 (default) are available. A where option can be specified, to export only a subset of the space time dataset. Archives exported with t.rast.export can be imported with t.rast.import.

Example

In this example, all the maps of 2012 of "tempmean_monthly" will be exported:

t.rast.export input=tempmean_monthly output=tempmean_monthly.tar.bzip2 \
              where="start_time >= ’2012-01-01’ and start_time < ’2013-01-01’"
