t.vect.extract — Extracts a subset of a space time vector dataset.

Keywords

temporal, extract, vector, time

Synopsis

t.vect.extract
t.vect.extract --help
t.vect.extract [-n] input=name [where=sql_query] [expression=sql_query] output=name [layer=string] [type=string[,string,...]] [basename=string] [nprocs=integer] [--overwrite] [--help] [--verbose] [--quiet] [--ui]

Flags

-n
Register empty maps
--overwrite
Allow output files to overwrite existing files
--help
Print usage summary
--verbose
Verbose module output
--quiet
Quiet module output
--ui
Force launching GUI dialog

Parameters

input=name [required]
Name of the input space time vector dataset
where=sql_query
WHERE conditions of SQL statement without ’where’ keyword used in the temporal GIS framework
Example: start_time > ’2001-01-01 12:30:00’
expression=sql_query
WHERE conditions of SQL statement without ’where’ keyword
Example: income < 1000 and inhab >= 10000
output=name [required]
Name of the output space time vector dataset
layer=string
Layer number or name
Vector features can have category values in different layers. This number determines which layer to use. When used with direct OGR access this is the layer name.
Default: 1
type=string[,string,...]
Input feature type
Options: point, line, boundary, centroid, area
Default: point,line,boundary,centroid,area
basename=string
Basename of the new generated output maps
A numerical suffix separated by an underscore will be attached to create a unique identifier
nprocs=integer
The number of v.extract processes to run in parallel. Use only if database backend is used which supports concurrent writing
Default: 1

Description

The purpose of t.vect.extract is to extract a subset of a space time vector dataset and to store that subset in a different space time vector dataset.

Example

In the following example a new space time vector dataset will be create with all the data later than 2000:

t.vect.extract input=shoreline where="start_time > 2000" \
               output=shoreline_later_2000 basename=new_shoreline
t.info shoreline_later_2000@shoreline type=stvds
