Q: How to show vector map labels

GRASS 5.3

  • After Importing the data, if a vector file run v.support option=build.
  • Use the appropriate "display" command to show the lines or areas.
  • Display the labels with d.vect.lines
  • The labels will be horizontal on most displays, but can be printed rotated along the lines.
  • The ps.map (Postscript print driver) supports rotation, so printing to a Postscript printer or file should rotate the labels.

GRASS 5.7

  • Topology is automatically built
  • Display the labels with d.vect (disp=attr attrcol=COLNAME)
  • or user d.m display manager
  • The ps.map (Postscript print driver) supports rotation, so printing to a Postscript printer or file should rotate the labels.
