map=name [required]
 
Name of vector map
error=name

option=string[,string,...] [required]
 
Build topology or dump topology or indices to standard output
 
Options: build, dump, sdump, cdump, fdump
 
Default: build
 
build: build topology
 
dump: write topology to stdout
 
sdump: write spatial index to stdout
 
cdump: write category index to stdout
 
fdump: write feature index to stdout (OGR simple-feature-based formats only)

v.build builds support files for GRASS vector maps. These support files supply topology and category information including spatial index that are needed by other GRASS modules.
GRASS is generating these support files automatically, only in rare cases the user has to (re)build them.
Refer to vector data processing in GRASS GIS for more information on GRASS vector data model.

v.build creates support files only for vector maps located in the user’s current mapset. It’s not possible to rebuild support files ( option=build) for vector maps from other mapsets.
In case of errors, the user can optionally generate an error vector map containing the erroneous vectors for later inspection.
If error vector map is specified, v.build checks:
isolated bondaries (which are not forming any areas),
centroids outside of area,
duplicated centroids.
Extensive checks for topological errors (flag -e) also includes:
lines or boundaries of zero length,
intersecting boundaries, ie. overlapping areas,
areas without centroids that are not isles.

Note that option=build recreates also spatial and category indices, not only topology. For linked OGR layers (see v.external) also feature index is created.
 
v.build map=urbanarea option=build
Note that the vector map urbanarea must be located in the current mapset.

Dump options print topology, spatial, category or feature index to standard output. Such information can be printed also for vector maps from other mapsets. A description of the vector topology is available in the GRASS GIS 7 Programmer’s Manual, section "Vector library topology management".
