input=name [required]
Name of input vector map
Or data source for direct OGR access
layer=string [required]
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
timestamp_column=name [required]
Column of input vector map containing time stamps for temoral sampling of STRDS
Name of attribute column
column=name [required]
Column of input vector map to which raster values are written
Column will be added if it does not exists or updated otherwise
Where-clause for filtering points in input vector map used for sampling
Example: income < 1000 and population >= 10000
strds=name[,name,...] [required]
Name of the input space time raster datasets
WHERE conditions of SQL statement without 'where' keyword used in the temporal GIS framework
Temporal where-clause for selecting a subset of raster maps from STRDS for sampling (Default: The temporal bounding box of the input vector points)

Table of contents


v.what.strds.timestamp matches points with a timestamp in the attribute table (timestamp_column) (e.g. recordings from stationary (temperature logger, wildlife camera traps) or non-stationary sensors (e.g GPS collars)) with Space Time Raster Datasets (STRDS) based on point locaitions in space and time. Raster values at the specific space-time position are written into the user-defined column in the attribute table of the input vector map.


The SQLite DB backend does not provide specific date/datetime datatypes. However, text columns with ISO formated date strings are supported for the timestamp_column as well.

Curretnly, only STRDS with absolute temporal type are supported.
