NAMEr.null - Manages NULL-values of given raster map.
KEYWORDSraster, null data
SYNOPSISr.null r.null help r.null [-fincr] map=name [setnull=val[-val][,val[-val],...]] [null=float] [--verbose] [--quiet] Flags: -f Only do the work if the map is floating-point -i Only do the work if the map is integer -n Only do the work if the map doesn't have a NULL-value bitmap file -c Create NULL-value bitmap file validating all data cells -r Remove NULL-value bitmap file --verbose Verbose module output --quiet Quiet module output Parameters: map=name Raster map for which to edit null file setnull=val[-val][,val[-val],...] List of cell values to be set to NULL null=float The value to replace the null value by
DESCRIPTIONThe function of r.null is to explicitly create the NULL-value bitmap file. The intended usage is to fix "old" maps that don't have a NULL- value bitmap file (i.e. to indicate if zero is valid value or is to be converted to NULL). The module does not work with reclassified maps. The design is flexible. Ranges of values can be set to NULL and/or the NULL value can be eliminated and replace with a specified value. The setnull parameter is used to specify values in the ranges to be set to NULL. A range is either a single value (e.g., 5.3), or a pair of values (e.g., 4.76-34.56). Existing NULL-values are left NULL, unless the null argument is requested. The null parameter eliminates the NULL value and replaces it with value. This argument is applied only to existing NULL values, and not to the NULLs created by the setnull argument.
EXAMPLESSet specific values of a classified map to NULL: r.null map=landcover.30m setnull=21,22 Set NULL-values of a map to a specific value: r.null map=fields null=99
NOTESNote that value is restricted to integer if the map is an integer map. r.null and reclassified maps: The problem is, if r.null was run on the reclass raster it would alter the original and any other reclass rasters of the original. Therefore r.null doesn't allow to recode reclassified maps (products of r.reclass). So, the way to recode such a map is: The user makes a raster out of the reclass that isn't a reclass by copying it: r.mapcalc newmap = reclass
