DESCRIPTION

r.pack collects raster map elements and support files and compressed them using gzip algorithm for copying. The resulting packed file can be afterwards unpacked within a GRASS GIS session by r.unpack. Since the selected raster map is not exported but natively stored, the current region is not respected. Hence r.pack stores the entire raster map.

NOTES

By default, the name of the pack file is determined from the input parameter. Optionally a different name can be given by output parameter. Currently only 2D raster maps are supported.

EXAMPLE

Pack up the entire raster map aspect into aspect.pack file:
r.pack input=aspect
The packed raster map file aspect.pack can afterwards be unpacked by
r.unpack input=aspect.pack
