Description

v.lrs.where identifies line id and real milepost+offset for points in vector map using linear reference system.

Example

This example is written for the Spearfish dataset (it continues the example from v.lrs.create).

In this example, the ’route_lrs’ shall be queried for unknown positions (points, stored in the map newpoints) along the LRS:

# generate query points
echo "590866.15|4926737.0
590933|4927133" | v.in.ascii out=newpoints
v.lrs.where lines=route_lrs points=newpoints rstable=route_lrs
pcat|lid|mpost|offset
pcat|lid|mpost|offset
1|22|4.000000+212.091461
2|22|6.000000+188.112093
# verification
g.region vector=route_lrs n=n+100 s=s-100 -p
d.erase
d.vect route_lrs
d.vect busstops disp=attr attr=cat size=10 bg=white lcol=blue yref=bottom
d.vect busstops icon=basic/circle fcol=blue
d.vect newpoints col=red
# measure distance to previous bus stop:
# use measuring tool in graphical user interface
