NOTES

The module requires on pyproj Python package to work.

EXAMPLES

The following imports CSV file called latest_sites.csv in the current directory into the current mapset as point vector map named sampling_sites using the default coordinate transformation from WGS84. Latitude and longitude are in columns Site_Lat and Site_Long.
v.in.csv input=latest_sites.csv output=sampling_sites latitude=Site_Lat longitude=Site_Long
