Parameters:

input=name [required]
Name of input vector map
Or data source for direct OGR access
layer=string
Layer number or name
Vector features can have category values in different layers. This number determines which layer to use. When used with direct OGR access this is the layer name.
Default: 1
output=name
Name for output PLY file
'-' for standard output

DESCRIPTION

v.out.ply converts a GRASS vector map in binary format to an ASCII file in PLY format. Currently supported is points export only. v.out.ply is designed for large point clouds and fairly fast if only coordinates are exported. The export of attributes with the option columns can slow down the export considerably.

If the output parameter is not given then the coordinates of any point data within the vector map is sent to stdout.
