DESCRIPTION

The module t.vect.observe.strds is used to observe specific locations in a space time raster dataset over a period of time using vector points. The first input is a vector map layer with vector points. The second input is one or several space time raster datasets (STRDS) that should be sampled over time at the vector point positions. The space time raster dataset will be sampled over its whole temporal extent (from start to end). A column name must be specified for each input space time raster dataset.

The result is a new space time vector dataset that contains a single (new) vector map which links to as many time-stamped attribute tables as raster map layers are present in the input space time raster dataset. Hence, for each time step in the space time raster dataset a new attribute table is created. The GRASS GIS Temporal Framework allows to time stamp attribute tables that can be linked to a single vector map layer.

The module v.what.rast is used internally for sampling the time stamped raster map layers. All sampled values of a single time stamped raster map layer are written into a new time stamped attribute table.

Use t.vect.db.select to print attribute values of the space time vector dataset to stdout.

EXAMPLE

The example shows how to create a space time vector dataset and a vector layer starting from a point vector and a space time raster dataset:
t.vect.observe.strds input=precip_30ynormals_3d strds=tempmean_monthly \
                     output=precip_stations vect=precip_stations_monthly \
                     columns=month
