Ticket #1554 (new defect)
[raster] ST_SetRotation does not preserve the angle between basis vectors
|Reported by:||dzwarg||Owned by:||dzwarg|
SetRotation does not preserve the angle between the basis vectors. (The angle between ib and jb is different after St_SetRotation is called. Both axes should be rotated the same.)
I remedied this in my working git repo with an implementation of DevWikiRealParameters and DevWikiAffineParameters, upon which st_rotation and st_setrotation now depend (in that repo). We can either pluck out the bits and pieces relevant to this issue or wait for the gen2 iterator...or you can reimplement the algorithms from scratch. Plucking out bits and pieces may be a bit sticky, since the new code is tested with CUnit tests, and the postgis repo lacks this infrastructure.
