Description

It's very useful being able to change the current GRASS region from the toolbar, but always find I need to do a "g.region align=rast" in GRASS after. Could an align option be added, either snap to current region alignment, or to a raster in the mapset?

Thanks,

Jamie

History

#1 Updated by Lorenzo Masini over 10 years ago

We will provide g.region.raster.align.

#2 Updated by Paolo Cavallini over 10 years ago

Unclear to me. We currently have:
- g.region.zoom
- g.region.multiple.raster
- r.region.region
- r.region.raster
- r.region.vector
- r.region.edge
- r.region.alignTo
I suspect some of the descriptions could be misleading though.
What is currently missing?

#3 Updated by Paolo Cavallini over 10 years ago

Descriptions "from raster" should mean "for raster", at least in one case - please check and correct.

It's also a bit unclear to me. Maybe Jamie (the reporter) meant that the "active" region should be altered in a way that GRASS (when using GRASS later) is aware of the changes? Not sure!(?)

Anyhow, I see the problem from a different point of view. My humble opinion is that the "Edit Current Grass Region" Tool (which launches the "Grass Region Settings" dialog) should provide a button directly to the g.region.* tools.

Most of the .region. tools work as epxected. The descriptions should be "cleaned" and only single-definitions/sentences should be kept that describe what a .region. tool does.

I'll report my findings in the list.
