NAME

v.db.univar - Calculates univariate statistics on selected table column for a GRASS vector map.

KEYWORDS

vector, statistics

SYNOPSIS

v.db.univar
v.db.univar help
v.db.univar [-e] table=string column=string [database=string] [driver=string] [where=string] [--verbose] [--quiet]

Flags:

-e
Extended statistics (quartiles and 90th percentile)
--verbose
Verbose module output
--quiet
Quiet module output

Parameters:

table=string
Name of data table
column=string
Column on which to calculate statistics (must be numeric)
database=string
Database/directory for table
driver=string
Database driver
where=string
WHERE conditions of SQL statement without 'where' keyword

DESCRIPTION

v.db.univar calculates basic univariate statistics for numeric attributes in a data table. It will calculate minimum, maximum, range, mean, standard deviation, variance, coefficient of variation, quartiles, median, and 90th percentile. It uses db.select to create list values for statistical calculations. NOTES If the database and driver are not specified, the default values set in db.connect will be used.

EXAMPLE

In this example, random points are sampled from the elevation map (North Carolina sample dataset) and univariate statistics performed:
g.region rast=elevation -p
v.random output=samples n=100
v.db.addtable samples column="heights double precision"
v.what.rast samples raster=elevation colum=heights
v.db.select samples

v.db.univar samples colum=heights
