gdal_rasterize sometimes doesn't use -a_nodata correctly
|Reported by:||Alister||Owned by:||warmerdam|
By default geotiffs created by gdal_rasterize are Float64. Create a geotiff with gdal_rasterize, setting the nodata value to something large e.g. -a_nodata 2147483647 The nodata value will be set to what you specify, but any areas which should be nodata will actually be 2147483648.
Is there something I'm missing here?
I have gdal1.8.1 from osgeo4w, although I think this behaviour has been around for a while.
