I do not seem able to create a square buffer around a point feature with v.buffer in GRASS GIS v.7.4.4.
The documentation states that "Using -s with a point vector map as input data, square buffers are created instead of round buffers." However, below is the command I ran, and the resulting buffer. Am I missing something obvious?
v.buffer -s input=vectmap type=point output=test_buffer distance=1000
