[GRASS-user] Horton's streams order - has it sense?

I do think it could be interesting, in fact I am using a couple of  
modules that performs Horton and Strahler ordering with my students. I  
just regret not be able to be more participative in this list.

I attach you the code in case it could be helpful.

The code it's a bit of a mess (not to mention that the comments are in  
Spanish ;-)

It assumes that the tables linked to the vector data are in postgresql.

There are two modules:

v.ordena_red (network ordering), performs Strahler or Shreve ordering  
(crit parameter). "desembocadura" means outlet (you have to pass the  
cat value of the oulet reach).

v.str2hor converts an ordering from Horton to Strahler.

They work fine as long as your network nodes have only 3 links.

In case have any problem, you should delete all the created files and  
tables to rerun them.

Good luck.
