v.neighbors.1grass man page

v.neighbors — Neighborhood analysis tool for vector point maps.
Makes each cell value a function of the attribute values assigned to the vector points or centroids around it, and stores new cell values in an output raster map.

Keywords

vector, algebra, statistics, raster, aggregation

Synopsis

v.neighbors
v.neighbors --help
v.neighbors input=name  [layer=string]  output=name method=string size=float  [--overwrite]  [--help]  [--verbose]  [--quiet]  [--ui]

Flags

--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 input vector map
Or data source for direct OGR access

layer=string

Layer number or name (’-1’ for all layers)
A single vector map can be connected to multiple database tables. This number determines which table to use. When used with direct OGR access this is the layer name.
Default: -1

output=name [required]

Name for output raster map

method=string [required]

Neighborhood operation
Options: count
Default: count

size=float [required]

Neighborhood diameter in map units

Description

Makes each cell value a function of the attribute values assigned to the vector points or centroids around it, and stores new cell values in an output raster map layer.

Example

Count the number of schools for a given grid (North Carolina sample dataset):

g.region vector=schools_wake res=100 -p -a
v.neighbors input=schools_wake output=schools_wake_3000m method=count size=3000
d.mon wx0
d.rast schools_wake_3000m
d.vect schools_wake

The result gives for each grid cell the number of points (here: schools) not farther than 1500 meter away (half of the given size value) from the respective cell center.
