#4857 new defect

GDALGetRasterStatistics() ignores bApproxOK=false bForce=false

Reported by: rblazek Owned by: warmerdam
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: GDAL_Raster Version: unspecified
Severity: normal Keywords: statistics


If GDALGetRasterStatistics() is called with bApproxOK=false and bForce=false and exact statistics (from all raster pixels) are not available/cached, it should return CE_Warning. Instead, it is giving estimated (from sample) cached statistics and it returns CE_None.

Thus it is not possible to test only if exact statistics are cached to avoid GDALComputeRasterStatistics() if possible.

Sorry, I was wrong, <Approximate>1</Approximate> is in <Histograms><HistItem> not in <Metadata>.
