GRASS GIS and Cartography

Using ps.map as cartographic engine

Display monitors

In addition to the hardcopy plots you can make with the ps.map command and its wxGUI Cartographic Composer), in GRASS 7 the d.barscale module can draw a number of styles of bar scale and north arrows directly in the live GIS display monitor; in GRASS 6.4.3+ the north arrows can be drawn on the monitor with the d.graph module or the d.mark addon module and the appropriate symbol (available with true-north rotation and line thickness settings). Style, text placement (or none), distance units, color, font, and fontsize can be controlled. Here are some examples:
