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.
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
containing the erroneous vectors for later inspection.
vector map is specified, v.build
- 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
