## NAME

**r.plane** - Creates raster plane map given dip (inclination), aspect (azimuth), and one point
## KEYWORDS

raster, elevation
## SYNOPSIS

**r.plane**

**r.plane help**

**r.plane** **name**=*string* **dip**=*float* **azimuth**=*float* **easting**=*float* **northing**=*float* **elevation**=*float* **type**=*string* [--**overwrite**]
### Flags:

**--overwrite**
- Force overwrite of output files

### 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*

## DESCRIPTION

*r.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 *azimuth* are: 0 degree = N, 90 degree = E etc.
## HINTS

`g.region -c` provides the easting and northing coordinates for
the center of the current region.
*int* maps take less disk space than *float*s, which in turn
take up less space than *double*s. (but can be less exact)

## EXAMPLE

A tilted plane in the Spearfish region:
r.plane myplane45 dip=45 az=90 east=599490 north=4920855 \
elev=1000 type=float
