>>> I have to extract isolated value from several raster.
Yesterday I had the same task to solve:
have a vector with some sampling points and wanting to insert values
from 2 raster layers to the table.

I do not understand why r.what should be of help here.
r.what  just prints out.
Isn't the right tool v.sample ?
But this tool works in a way the user would not expect it:
Now, the problem is with v.sample:
1) it just accepts 1 input raster only.
2) it creates a new vector with a totally new table instead of updating
the attribute table of the input vector with the raster values
A note to 2): Such a procedure is implemented in v.rast.stats.
What do the GRASS devs think about the items 1) & 2)?
Is it a legitimate enhancement?
