I just grabbed the Blue Marble via r.in.wms. So it won't be that
easy to modify the color table.

I liked the d.vect.thematic, maybe improve this?
For now I have used the "nint" parameter to define more classes. For
unknown reasons the use of
themecalc="custom_breaks" breakpoints="0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10"
fails in the PHP script (no time now to investigate) which would be
I also tried to play with the where option to recolor the circles
on their age as USGS does. But I didn't come up with a working
SQL statement (to select field values minus some days etc). The use
