Display monitors

In GRASS 7 the d.barscale module can draw a number of styles of bar scale and north arrows directly in the GIS 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. Style, text placement (or none), distance units, color, font, and fontsize can be controlled. Here are some examples:
