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.

With g.mapset, the shell history (i.e. .bash_history file of the initial location will be used to record the command history.

NOTES

By default, the shell continues to use the history for the old mapset. To change this behaviour the history can be switched to record in the new mapset's history file as follows:
# bash example
history -w
history -r /"$GISDBASE/$LOCATION/$MAPSET"/.bash_history
HISTFILE=/"$GISDBASE/$LOCATION/$MAPSET"/.bash_history
