#6262 closed defect (fixed)

ogr geojson not writing Geometry Collection bbox

Reported by: wmaddox Owned by: warmerdam
Priority: normal Milestone: 2.0.2

I noticed that when I try to save some geojson data to file, the line where the bbox should be is blank. After further study, I found that the line is actually not blank, but filled with 80 spaces. The culprit is in:


#define SPACE_FOR_BBOX 80

My bounding boxes are longer (95 chars):

"bbox": [ -109.890861747626857, 31.429616227820929, -109.890502331618748, 31.429927487647245 ]

I obviously do not need this much precision, but having to write extra code to make sure the values fall within the SPACE_FOR_BBOX value should not be necessary. In light of this, would it be possible to change the way the bbox is written to the file? Maybe create a dynamic bbox buffer rather than a fixed value of 80. If not, simply changing the SPACE_FOR_BBOX value from 80 to 100 would be acceptable.

The reservation space is needed so as to be able bbox at the beginning of the file, if readers work in streaming mode.
