graphically set up region bounds
|Reported by:||vincent||Owned by:||martinl|
When using grass with wx gui, one can regret the lack of an interactive tool in map display window that would allow to graphically determine region bounds via a drag-n-drop box. I don't mean to interact with region resolutions, only with boundaries. If I refer to gui/wxpython/mapdisp/mapwindow.py, it would be a kind of mix between functions Zoom(self, begin, end, zoomtype) and DisplayToWind(self). The latter is nice except if you need to define a region whose dimensions don't fit with the map display frame ratio...
My knowledge of python is too poor to propose any concrete coding, but I guess it should not be that tricky to implement.
Does anyone else think it's a good idea that wxgui provides an on-the-fly method for region setting ?
