Super Vaclav - I am nearly there now - My last bit of the puzzle is to
create the flow direction raster. How do I reclassify in order to get the
stream direction using r.mapcalc? I am just coping in what you said from
your last email Vaclav so that you know which part I am stuck on. This is
really super - thanks again

[Since you already have the streams and you want to use them, you need to
convert them to raster and then also get stream direction for
r.stream.distance by reclassifying, e.g. with r.mapcalc]
