gdalinfo crashes against orbview nitf imagery
|Reported by:||abarton||Owned by:||warmerdam|
Gdalinfo.exe version 1.6.3-1.6.1 crashes when ran against some OrbView?-5 imagery. While running it continues to be cpu intensive and use more memory until it's failure. I've found no relation between filesize and memory usage; my test files are 2.7GB (1 band) and 1.2GB (4 band) while generally gdalinfo uses ~ 1.75GB before failing.
I've found that gdalinfo.exe version 1.6.0dev, FWTools 2.1.0 is able to read all samples that fail in subsequent versions. Attached is output from the working version of gdalinfo for both test cases. Associated sample data, orbview-5_4x8U.ntf and orbview-5_8U.ntf, can be found at ftp.i3.com using the fwarmerdam login.
