v.category - Attach, delete or report vector categories to map geometry.

v.category v.category help v.category [-g] input=name [output=name] [option=string] [type=string[,string,...]] [layer=integer[,integer,...]] [ids=range] [cat=integer] [step=integer] [--overwrite] [--verbose] [--quiet] Flags: -g Shell script style, currently only for report Format: layer type count min max --overwrite Allow output files to overwrite existing files --verbose Verbose module output --quiet Quiet module output Parameters: input=name Name of input vector map output=name Name for output vector map option=string Action to be done Options: add,del,chlayer,sum,report,print Default: add add: add a new category del: delete all categories of given layer chlayer: change layer number (e.g. layer=3,1 changes layer 3 to layer 1) sum: add the value specified by cat option to the current category value report: print report (statistics), in shell style: layer type count min max print: print category values, more cats in the same layer are separated by '/' type=string[,string,...] Feature type Options: point,line,boundary,centroid,area Default: point,line,boundary,centroid,area layer=integer[,integer,...] Layer number A single vector map can be connected to multiple database tables. This number determines which table to use. Default: 1 ids=range Feature ids (by default all features are processed) Example: 1,3,7-9,13 cat=integer Category value Default: 1 step=integer Category increment Default: 1
v.category attaches, deletes or reports vector categories to map geometry. These categories (IDs) are used to link geometry object(s) to attribute records (from attribute table linked to vector map).


Use v.to.db to upload related categories to a linked attribute table. The type parameter specifies the type of geometry objects to which the category is added; it is similar to an input filter - only the geometry specified in 'type' is processed. If the type parameter is set to centroid and the option parameter set to add, new categories will be added to existing centroids. Note however, that new centroids cannot be created this way. To do so, they must be added manually using v.digit or by running v.category with the type parameter set to area. Areas are a special case because it is impossible to attach a cat to an area without a centroid; in this case, the module places new centroids in areas automatically. The cat parameter is only used with option=add and option=sum. The ids parameter specifies the list of feature IDs to which the operation is performed; by default, all vector feature ids are processed. The feature ID is an internal (unique) geometry ID that all vector primitives possess, and is separate from any category the feature may also possess. v.edit map=inputname tool=select to find out the geometry ids of certain features.
