DESCRIPTION

v.convert.all converts all GRASS 5.0/5.3/5.4 vectors in the current mapset into GRASS 7 vectors.

NOTES

Vector maps from 5.0/5.3/5.4 and 7 do not interfere. They are stored in different directories, so the same names can be kept. Old vector maps can be listed with g.list oldvect.

To convert back from 7 to 6 vector format, use v.build in GRASS 6.

To convert back from 6.0 into the 5.0/5.3/5.4 vector format, use v.out.ogr (to SHAPE format) and then v.in.shape in the old GRASS program.

As this GRASS version uses SQL for attribute management, there are some SQL restrictings concerning the file names. This script changes dots (e.g. "foo.bar") in old vector map names into underline(s) (e.g. "foo_bar").

EXAMPLE

To convert all old vector maps in the current mapset to the new vector format:

v.convert.all
