v.out.svg - Exports a vector map to SVG file.

vector, export

v.out.svg --help
v.out.svg input=name [layer=string] output= name type=string [precision=integer] [ attribute=name[,name,...]] [-- overwrite] [--help] [-- verbose] [--quiet] [--ui]

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 SVG output file
type=string [required]
Output type
Defines which feature-type will be extracted
Options: poly, line, point
Default: poly
Coordinate precision
Default: 6
Attribute(s) to include in output SVG

v.out.svg converts GRASS vector data to SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) code notation. In particular, it
converts GRASS line, boundary, area, point, centroid objects to SVG <path />, <circle /> elements,
reduces coordinate precision in SVG-output to save bandwidth,
extracts GRASS attributes to gg:name="value" attributes.
The precision parameter controls the number of decimals for coordinates output ( precision=0 corresponds to integer precision in the output SVG file).

Export polygons from GRASS vector map soils (Spearfish sample data) to SVG format:
v.out.svg input=soils output=/tmp/output.svg type=poly
Export lines from GRASS vector map t_hydro (Spearfish sample data) to SVG format, set coordinate precision to 0:
v.out.svg input=t_hydro output=/tmp/output.svg type=line precision=0
Export points from GRASS vector map archsites (Spearfish sample data) to SVG format, include attribute str1 (name):
v.out.svg input=archsites output=/tmp/output.svg type=point precision=0 attrib=str1
