Introduction of spatial and temporal vertical units for raster3d maps and r3.support
|Reported by:||huhabla||Owned by:||huhabla|
I need to add vertical units support to raster3d maps to distinguish between voxel cubes with 3 spatial dimensions or space-time voxel cubes with two spatial and one temporal dimension. These units may be spatial or temporal, based on unit definitions introduced in gis.h, datetime.h and lib/gis/units.c. This results in several modifications in lib/gis and lib/raster3d and lib/python. The current raster3d header format will change, but backward compatibility is assured. I have attached a patch including the new module "r3.support".
The temporal units and the top-bottom resolution can/will be used as relative time using the datetime library and the temporal GIS library to allow spatio-temporal space-time cube processing.
The module r3.support allows the creation/modification of title, description, history and spatio-temporal units for raster3d maps.
