Description (last modified by mloskot) (diff)
Recently, Frank and Jorge have pointed that there is no known good reason of supporting PT_16BF (16-bit float-point numeric type) defined in the original specification documents (see RFC1-SerializedFormat and RFC2-WellKnownBinaryFormat. Also, it is unclear of what's the purpose of this type.
I have never seen such a thing before and I'm not sure why it is part of the WKTRaster specification. I would suggest removing it. - Frank's post
Martin Daly and I, we agree that there is no point to support 16-bit float-point type.
This ticket is to propose (official) removal of PT_16BF type from the WKT Raster specification as well as from the implementation.
