NAMEr.plane - Creates raster plane map given dip (inclination), aspect (azimuth) and one point.
SYNOPSISr.plane r.plane help r.plane name=string dip=float azimuth=float easting=float northing=float elevation=float type=string [--overwrite] [--verbose] [--quiet] Flags: --overwrite Allow output files to overwrite existing files --verbose Verbose module output --quiet Quiet module output Parameters: name=string Name of raster plane to be created dip=float Dip of plane. Value must be between -90 and 90 degrees Default: 0.0 azimuth=float Azimuth of the plane. Value must be between 0 and 360 degrees Default: 0.0 easting=float Easting coordinate of a point on the plane northing=float Northing coordinate of a point on the plane elevation=float Elevation coordinate of a point on the plane type=string Type of the raster map to be created Options: int,float,double
DESCRIPTIONr.plane creates a tilted plane raster map given user-specified parameters for inclination, azimuth, and the geographic location of a point on the plane. The angle orientations of the azimuth parameter increase counter- clockwise, i.e., 0 degree = N, 45 degree = NW, 90 degree = W etc. Increasing values of the dip parameter progressively lower (or dip) the northern half of the plane, and incline the southern half, assuming the azimuth parameter is held constant at 0 degrees.
NOTESg.region -c provides the easting and northing coordinates for the center of the current region. int maps take less disk space than floats, which in turn take up less space than doubles (but can be less exact).
EXAMPLEA tilted plane in the Spearfish region: r.plane myplane45 dip=45 az=90 east=599490 north=4920855 \ elev=1000 type=float
