Name of input vector map
 
Or data source for direct OGR access
arc_layer=string
 
Arc layer
 
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

Node layer
 
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: 2
arc_column=name
 
Arc forward/both direction(s) cost column (number)

Arc backward direction cost column (number)

Node cost column (number)

Type of components
 
Options: weak, strong
 
weak: Weakly connected components
 
strong: Strongly connected components

v.net.components computes the weakly and strongly connected components in a network.

Two nodes, u and v are in the same strongly connected component if there are directed paths from u to v and from v to u. The nodes are in the same weakly connected component if, ignoring edge directions, there is a path between them.
The type of components is specified by method parameter. v.net.components creates a table and links it to layer 1. This table contains only two integer columns: cat and comp. If a point or both endpoints of a line belong to the same component then the point/line is written to the output map and appropriate information is stored in the table. If -a flag is set then new points are added on the nodes without points. These points have category numbers larger than any category used in the input map.
One-way roads can be defined by assigning a cost of -1 to the appropriate cost column ( arc_column or arc_backward_column). This affects only strongly connected components. Network nodes can be closed by assigning a cost of -1 to the node cost column. All nodes with a cost < 0 can not be traversed and are end points, while all nodes with a cost &#8805; 0 can be traversed. This affects both weakly and strongly connected components.

Any road network should form a single strongly connected component. Otherwise, it is impossible to travel between some places.
