NAME

g.mapset - Changes current mapset.
Optionally create new mapset or list available mapsets in given location.

KEYWORDS

general, settings

SYNOPSIS

g.mapset
g.mapset help
g.mapset [-cl] [mapset=string] [location=string] [gisdbase=path] [--verbose] [--quiet]

Flags:

-c
Create mapset if it doesn't exist
-l
List available mapsets
--verbose
Verbose module output
--quiet
Quiet module output

Parameters:

mapset=string
Name of mapset where to switch
location=string
Location name (not location path)
gisdbase=path
GIS data directory (full path to the directory where the new location is)

DESCRIPTION

g.mapset changes the current working MAPSET, LOCATION, or GISDBASE. This is a fairly radical maneuver to run mid-session, take care when running the GUI at the same time.

NOTES

The shell continues to use the history for the old mapset. To change this you can switch the history to the new settings by commands:

   history -w
   history -r /"$GISDBASE/$LOCATION/$MAPSET"/.bash_history
   HISTFILE=/"$GISDBASE/$LOCATION/$MAPSET"/.bash_history
