DESCRIPTION

v.convert converts GRASS 5.0/5.3/5.4 vectors into 5.7/6.x vectors.

NOTES

Vector maps from 5.0/5.3/5.4 and 5.7/6.x do not interfere. They are stored in different directories, so you can use the same names. Old vector maps can be listed with g.list oldvect.

If you need to convert back from 5.7/6.x into the 5.0/5.3/5.4 vector format, use v.out.ogr (to SHAPE format) and then v.in.shape in the old GRASS program. Alternatively use "v.out.ascii -o" and v.in.ascii.

As this GRASS version uses SQL for attribute management, there are some SQL restrictings concerning the file names.

Missing centroids can be added with v.category.

EXAMPLE

v.convert in=vectormap_from_50 out=vectormap_60
