HELP! I'm trying to import tiger data into a GRASS/RIM database using the v.in.tiger command and
the Gen.Maps command. It doesn't seem that the ".in $ETC/db.layout" portion worked in the v.in.tiger.
When the Gen.Vect script finished, I had no column definitions. I worked around this problem by
creating the columns manually (using the "set input" option in RIM). Then I wanted to run the
Gen.Maps script but I crashed just after the first query (on the .vect statement) because all the
column names are blank. Has anyone successfully read in TIGER data and/or experienced problems
have had? Are there any tricks I should know about?? Thanks!!
