using e.g. postgres or mysql as storage backend for vector data you can use
modules like v.db.join or db.execute for complex querying your vector data.
Zitat von Wesley Roberts <wroberts at csir.co.za>:
> Hi All,
> Before I head into learning mySQL I would like to know if grass has a command
> that can merge / spatial join dbf attribute tables (similar to the spatial
> join used in ESRI).
> Reading the archives I see people have used anything from PostgreSQL to mySQL
> to combine the attributes of vectors. I have a 13 point data sets with 15625
> points with attributes attached. I would like to combine all 13 into one
> dbase file and then import into a stats package.
> Do I need to use something like mySQL or does GRASS have a builtin function
> for this sort of application? If not could someone point me towards a GRASS
> orientated mySQL tutorial
> Many thanks,
> Wesley Roberts MSc.
