False northing in BAG georeferencing is ignored
|Reported by:||jdvarner||Owned by:||Kurt Schwehr|
The GDAL BAG driver seems to ignore any false northing value present in the georeferencing info stored in the XML block near the end of the BAG file.
Here's an example BAG near American Samoa. It should be NAD83 UTM zone 2, with a false northing of 1000000 meters, which would make it "NAD83 UTM Zone 2 Southern Hemisphere".
However, gdalinfo reports it as "UTM Zone 2, Northern Hemisphere" with a false northing of zero.
A colleague of mine reports that CARIS software correctly reads the BAG false northing value.
