NAME

v.out.svg - Exports a vector map to SVG file.

KEYWORDS

vector, export

SYNOPSIS

v.out.svg
v.out.svg --help
v.out.svg input=name [layer=string] output=name type=string [precision=integer] [attribute=name[,name,...]] [--overwrite] [--help] [--verbose] [--quiet] [--ui]

Flags:

--overwrite
Allow output files to overwrite existing files
--help
Print usage summary
--verbose
Verbose module output
--quiet
Quiet module output
--ui
Force launching GUI dialog

Parameters:

input=name [required]
Name of input vector map
Or data source for direct OGR access
layer=string
Layer number or name ('-1' for all layers)
A single vector map can be connected to multiple database tables. This number determines which table to use. When used with direct OGR access this is the layer name.
Default: -1
output=name [required]
Name for SVG output file
type=string [required]
Output type
Defines which feature-type will be extracted
Options: poly, line, point
Default: poly
precision=integer
Coordinate precision
Default: 6
attribute=name[,name,...]
Attribute(s) to include in output SVG

DESCRIPTION

v.out.svg converts GRASS vector data to SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) code notation. In particular, it The precision parameter controls the number of decimals for coordinates output (precision=0 corresponds to integer precision in the output SVG file).

EXAMPLE

Export polygons from GRASS vector map soils (Spearfish sample data) to SVG format:

v.out.svg input=soils output=/tmp/output.svg type=poly

Export lines from GRASS vector map t_hydro (Spearfish sample data) to SVG format, set coordinate precision to 0:

v.out.svg input=t_hydro output=/tmp/output.svg type=line precision=0

Export points from GRASS vector map archsites (Spearfish sample data) to SVG format, include attribute str1 (name):

v.out.svg input=archsites output=/tmp/output.svg type=point precision=0 attrib=str1
