DESCRIPTION

d.histogram displays the category-value distribution for a user-specified raster map layer, in the form of a bar chart or a pie chart. The display will be displayed in the active display frame on the graphics monitor, using the colors in the raster map layer's color table. The program determines the raster map's category value distribution by counting cells.

NOTES

d.histogram respects the current geographic region settings and the current MASK (if one exists).

d.histogram uses the colors in the map's color look-up table (i.e., the map's colr or colr2 file).

EXAMPLES

Running the command below will generate the bar graph shown in the figure:
g.region raster=elevation -p
d.mon wx0
d.histogram map=elevation
d.histogram bar graph example

Running the command below will generate the pie graph shown in the figure:

g.region raster=landuse96_28m -p
d.histogram map=landuse96_28m style=pie  
d.histogram pie graph example
