v.delaunay(1) Grass User's Manual v.delaunay(1)

v.delaunay - Creates a Delaunay triangulation from an input vector map containing points or centroids.

vector, geometry, triangulation

v.delaunay --help
v.delaunay [-rl] input=name [layer=string] output=name [--overwrite] [-- help] [--verbose] [--quiet] [--ui]

Use only points in current region
Output triangulation as a graph (lines), not areas
Allow output files to overwrite existing files
Print usage summary
Verbose module output
Quiet module output
Force launching GUI dialog

input=name [required]
Name of input vector map
Or data source for direct OGR access
Layer number or name (’-1’ for all layers)
A single vector map can be connected to multiple database tables. This number determines which table to use. When used with direct OGR access this is the layer name.
Default: -1
output=name [required]
Name for output vector map

v.delaunay uses an existing vector points map (input) to create a Delaunay triangulation vector map ( output).
Delaunay triangulation example (red-yellow points are the data points from which the triangulation was generated):

Commands used with the North Carolina dataset to create the above figure (subset shown in figure).
g.region n=220750 s=219950 w=638300 e=639000 -p
v.delaunay input=elev_lid792_randpts output=elev_lid792_randpts_delaunay
