Category distinctions in the input raster map are preserved. This means that if distinct category values are adjacent, they will NOT be clumped together. The user can run r.reclass prior to r.clump to recategorize cells and reassign cell category values.
r.clump works properly with raster map that contain only "fat" areas (more than a single cell in width). Linear elements (lines that are a single cell wide) may or may not be clumped together depending on the direction of the line - horizontal and vertical lines of cells are considered to be contiguous, but diagonal lines of cells are not considered to be contiguous and are broken up into separate clumps.
A random color table and other support files are generated for the output raster map.
g.region rast=lakes -p # report sizes by waterbody type r.report lakes units=h # clump per raster polygon r.clump lakes out=lakes_individual # report sizes by individual waterbody r.report lakes_individual units=h
