DESCRIPTION

v.fixed.segmentpoints creates segment points along a vector line with fixed distances by using the v.segment module. A category of one line has to be given. Start and end point of the line will be considered. The distance option is limited to an integer number. As a prefix (starting with a letter) has to be given, resulting vectors are prefix_singleline and prefix_segmentpoints, resulting external files are prefix_segmentpoints and prefix_segmentpoints.csv.

The next to last point may be closer to the last point as the given distance. Distance information for every point is added to the vector attribute table. The attribute is then exported as CSV file.

The category (cat) of the input line is stored in the column cat_line of the prefix_segmentpoints attribute table.

EXAMPLE

  # NC sample data set
  v.fixed.segmentpoints vector=streams@PERMANENT cat=40102 dir=C:\tmp distance=25
