RGB stands for red, green, and blue. This program
visually combines three raster map layers to form a color
image. For each layer, the corresponding component from
the layer's color table is used (e.g. for the red layer,
the red component is used, and so on). In general, the
layers should use a grey-scale color table.
- Overlay the resulting raster map layer onto whatever is already
displayed in the active graphics frame. Any no-data areas in any of
the named raster maps will seem transparent, and reveal the underlying
image previously displayed in the graphics frame. If the -o
flag is set, only cells containing non-null values will be displayed
from the overlaid raster map. All other areas (i.e., the
portions of the overlaid map that contain null values) will leave the
underlying display untouched.
- Name of raster map layer to be used for RED component.
- Name of raster map layer to be used for GREEN component.
- Name of raster map layer to be used for BLUE component.
This is a new version of d.rgb, which sends the
data to the graphics monitor in true-color RGB format.
Unlike the previous version, it does not attempt to
quantize the combined image into a fixed number of colors.
Nor does it have an option to generate a composite layer.
The image and raster map layers will not display properly
if the graphics device does not have a reasonable sampling
of the RGB color-space.
If color quality of satellite image color composites seems to appear poor,
run r.colors on the selected satellite
Note: Future GRASS versions may do this for you automatically.
