d.vect.chart displays charts for GRASS vector data in the active frame on the graphics monitor.


The charts are positioned as follows: Bar charts are placed with their lower edge starting from the y-coordinate of the feature being symbolized, and centered with respect to the x-coordinate. The -c flag can be used to center the bar chart in both x and y directions.

The 'sizecol' parameter is proportionate to the radius.

The optional max_ref parameter accepts a list of values that represent the maximum value for each column listed in the values for the parameter columns. These values are used to create a framed bar plot if ctype is bar (See Example 2).


Example 1

d.vect.chart map=vectmap columns=cens51,cens61,cens71,cens81

Example 2

Create framed bar graphs of an erodibiliy index from the SPEARFISH dataset. -s -v in=erode.index out=erode_index feature=area
