DESCRIPTION

v.what.rast.label retrieves raster values and labels from one or more given raster maps for each point stored in the input vector map. The name of the columns with the raster values start with ID_, followed by the name of the raster layer from which the values are taken. For the name of the column with the raster labels, the name of the raster from which the label is taken is used.

Optionally, the user can define raster layers without labels. In that case only the raster values are uploaded to a column with the name of that raster.

Another option is to add columns with point coordinates to the attribute table of the output vector layer.

The user can opt to include the attribute columns of the input vector layer in the output. In that case, the columns with the raster values and labels will appear after the columns from the input vector layer.

NOTES

Points and centroids with shared category number cannot be processed. To solve this, unique categories may be added with v.category in a separate layer. See v.what.rast for details.

If you only want to upload raster values at positions of vector points to the attribute table of that vector layer, use v.what.rast instead.

EXAMPLES

Get the POI within the bounds of the land use map.

g.region raster=landuse
v.in.region output=regionbounds
v.select ainput=points_of_interest binput=regionbounds output=POI_select operator=within

Extract raster values and labels from landuse map. Columns from the input map (POI_select) are not included.

v.what.rast.label vector=POI_select raster=landuse raster2=elevation output=POI_landuse1

Extract raster values and labels from landuse map. Use the -0 flag to include the columns from the input map (POI_select)

v.what.rast.label -o vector=POI_select raster=landuse raster2=elevation output=POI_landuse2

Extract raster values and labels from landuse map and values from elevation map. Use the -0 flag to include the columns from the input map (POI_select)

v.what.rast.label -o vector=POI_select@user1 raster=landuse raster2=elevation output=POI_landuse3

Extract raster values and labels from landuse map and values from elevation map. Use the -0 flag to include the columns from the input map (POI_select). Use the -c flag to include the point coordinates

v.what.rast.label -o -c vector=POI_select@user1 raster=landuse@PERMANENT raster2=elevation@PERMANENT output=POI_landuse4
