DESCRIPTION

r.vect.stats bins points from a vector map into a raster map.

Use g.region to set the extent and resolution of the resulting raster.

EXAMPLES

Calculate number of schools in grid of spatial resolution 1km:
g.region res=1000 vector=schools_wake
r.vect.stats input=schools_wake output=schools_count    
Calculate sum of atribute column CAPACITYTO:
r.vect.stats input=schools_wake output=schools_capacity_sum column=CAPACITYTO method=sum
Number of schools in grid of spatial resolution 1km Sum of atribute column CAPACITYTO in grid of spatial resolution 1km
Figure: Number of schools (left part) and sum of CAPACITYTO attribute column (right part) in grid of spatial resolution 1km.
