[GRASS-user] Panning with r.profile or the gis.m profiler

For your pipeline, the better solution is to use the r.profile module that
underlies the interactive profiler.

Set your computational region to match your entire pipeline with g.region.
Then put the xy coordinates of the transect nodes into r.profile, along with
the interval parameter (how often do you want an elevation calcuated). It
will output a text file with the coordinates and elevations for each point
along the transect with the interval you specify.

No need to stitch anything.
