DESCRIPTION

v.in.redlist imports IUCN Red List Spatial Data. This data is by definition in WGS84 geographic coordinates.

By the -l flag species in column 'binomial' of the attribute table are listed. The species in column 'binomial' can be exported to a text file by the -s flag.

One of the species mentioned by -l or -s flag has to be specified for importing.

EXAMPLE

  # list species in column 'binomial' of the attribute table by -l flag
  v.in.redlist -l input=GYMNOPHIONA.shp
  
  # export species in column 'binomial' of the attribute table into a text file by -s flag  
  v.in.redlist -s input=GYMNOPHIONA.shp dir=C:\data\iucn\GYMNOPHIONA
  
  # import spatial data for a user defined species 
  v.in.redlist input=GYMNOPHIONA.shp /
  output=Scolecomorphus_vittatus species_name=Scolecomorphus vittatus
