Table of contents


This command has 2 modes of operation. If no date argument is supplied, then the current timestamp for the 3D raster map is printed. If a date argument is specified, then the timestamp for the 3D raster map is set to the specified date(s). See examples below.

See TIMESTAMP FORMAT description for details.


Strings containing spaces should be quoted. For specifying a range of time, the two timestamps should be separated by a forward slash. To remove the timestamp from a 3D raster map, use date=none.


Prints the timestamp for the "soils" 3D raster map. If there is no timestamp for soils, nothing is printed. If there is a timestamp, one or two lines are printed, depending on if the timestamp for the map consists of a single date or two dates (ie start and end dates).
r3.timestamp map=soils
Sets the timestamp for "soils" to the single date "15 sep 1987".
r3.timestamp map=soils date='15 sep 1987'
Sets the timestamp for "soils" to have the start date "15 sep 1987" and the end date "20 feb 1988".
r3.timestamp map=soils date='15 sep 1987/20 feb 1988'
Sets the timestamp for "soils" to have the start date "18 feb 2005 10:30:00" and the end date "20 jul 2007 20:30:00".
r3.timestamp map=soils date='18 feb 2005 10:30:00/20 jul 2007 20:30:00'
Removes the timestamp for the "soils" 3D raster map.
r3.timestamp map=soils date=none


Spaces in the timestamp value are required.
