vector, import, GPS
v.in.garmin [-vwrtpk] [output=string] [port=string] [--overwrite]
- verbose mode
- upload Waypoints from GPS
- upload Routes from GPS
- upload Track from GPS
- force import of track or route data as points
- do not attempt projection transform from WGS84
- Force overwrite of output files
- name for new vector map (omit for display to stdout)
- port Garmin receiver is connected to
- Default: /dev/gps
v.in.garmin allows the user to import waypoint, route, and track
data from a locally connected Garmin GPS receiver via the
program by Carsten Tschach.
Use at your own risk. This software comes with absolutely no warranty.
If the GPS is set up to output WGS84 Lat/Lon, v.in.garmin will
attempt to automatically transform the coordinates to the current projection.
In all other cases, no checks are performed for datum, projection and format of data.
You must check for yourself that your receiver, gpstrans and GRASS
use the same map datum and projection.
The automatic transform may be skipped by using the -k flag.
Route and Track data may be uploaded as points by using the -p flag,
otherwise they will be imported as a line. You can run v.in.garmin
multiple times and merge the line and point vectors with the v.patch
command if you want, but take care when merging dissimilar attribute tables.
Before running v.in.garmin, gpstrans should be set up
as follows to output latitude-longitude:
$ gpstrans -s
datum: 100 (WGS84)
format: 2 - lat/lon ddd.ddddd
cs2cs from PROJ.4
Based on v.in.garmin.sh for GRASS 5.0 by Andreas Lange
with bug fixes by Glynn Clements and Markus Neteler
Rewritten for GRASS 5.3 and 5.7 by Hamish Bowman
