DESCRIPTION

d.barscale displays a barscale on the graphics monitor using either the mouse or given screen coordinates. It can draw the scale in a couple of styles or simply draw a north arrow.

NOTE

d.barscale will not work in Lat/Lon locations as the horizontal scale distance changes with latitude. Try d.grid instead.

The -l flag will always draw a north arrow and a line scale together; it is currently not possible to draw a line scale without a north arrow. Instead, the -s flag can be used to draw a barscale only.
