Imports space time raster dataset.


temporal, import, raster, time, create location


t.rast.import --help
t.rast.import [-rleoc] input=name output=name  [basename=string]  directory=name  [title=string]   [description=string]   [location=string]   [memory=memory in MB]   [--overwrite]  [--help]  [--verbose]  [--quiet]  [--ui]



Set the current region from the last map that was imported


Link the raster files using r.external


Extend location extents based on new dataset


Override projection check (use current location’s projection)
Assume that the dataset has same projection as the current location


Create the location specified by the "location" parameter and exit. Do not import the space time raster datasets.


Allow output files to overwrite existing files


Print usage summary


Verbose module output


Quiet module output


Force launching GUI dialog


input=name [required]

Name of input file

output=name [required]

Name of the output space time raster dataset


Basename of the new generated output maps
A numerical suffix separated by an underscore will be attached to create a unique identifier

directory=name [required]

Path to the extraction directory
Default: /tmp


Title of the new space time dataset


Description of the new space time dataset


Create a new location and import the data into it. Do not run this module in parallel or interrupt it when a new location should be created

memory=memory in MB

Maximum memory to be used (in MB)
Cache size for raster rows
Default: 300


t.rast.import imports a space time raster dataset archive that was exported with t.rast.export.


Optionally a base map name can be provided to avoid that existing raster maps are overwritten by the map names that are used in the STRDS archive.

The directory is used as work directory in case of import but can also be used as a data directory when using GeoTIFF for the data exchange.


The North Carolina space time dataset contains a data package called lst_daily.tar.bzip2 with daily data from MODIS LST. Import it by running:

t.rast.import input=lst_daily.tar.bzip2 output=lst_daily \
              basename=lst directory=/tmp
