#1331 closed defect (fixed)

HDF4 EOS case EOS GRID memory error.

Reported by: denis.nadeau@… Owned by: warmerdam
Priority: normal Milestone: 1.4.2
Component: GDAL_Raster Version: unspecified
Severity: major Keywords: hdf

Description (last modified by warmerdam)

hdf4imagedataset.cpp line 2221
poDS->iBandDim = i;

When Dimension List does not have the word "Band", this variable never get set and it is initialized to -1 in the constructor.  This cause a memory error in IReadBlock method.

hdf4imagedataset.cpp line 429
aiStart[poGDS->iBandDim] = nBand - 1;
aiEdges[poGDS->iBandDim] = 1;

aiEdges[-1]=1  on my machine cause eERR variable to be set to CPL_DEBUG and causing a faulty GDAL Read error, for eERR should be CPL_None when IReadBlock returns.

I guess in the 3D array case this should be set to 0.

This condition works for me.  I assume that X and Y dimension will
have X or Y in there name. 

line 2221
                    for ( i = 0; i < nDimCount; i++ )
                        if ( !(strstr( papszDimList[i], "X" )) &&
			     !(strstr( papszDimList[i], "Y" )) )

I ran into this today, and put a bunch of fixes in related to this area of code.

Can you verify that the trunk version of GDAL fixes the problem you were seeing?

Deferring to 1.4.2 pending feedback from Denis.

Bump ... when you get a chance I'd appreciate your checking this Denis.

I was revising this bug, the code runs, but there is an aiStart[-1] on line 350.

                    aiStart[poGDS->iBandDim] = nBand - 1;
                    aiEdges[poGDS->iBandDim] = 1;

gdal_translate always produce the same results using different bands using this file: AIRS.2002.09.17.L3.RetStd008.v4.0.9.0.G06086155227.hdf

I also used subdataset: HDF4_EOS:EOS_GRID:"AIRS.2002.09.17.L3.RetStd008.v4.0.9.0.G06086155227.hdf":descending_MW_only:GPHeight_MW_D_ct

poGDS->iBandDim should be initialized to "the 3rd dimension" for 3D case




Here is the location of the file I used.

I have confirmed serious holes in the iBandDim selection logic for EOS_GRID datasets. I have committed fixes as r11340 (trunk) and r11341 (branches/1.4). Testing with your datasets shows things operating ok.

I also noticed that access to later bands of that dataset are extremely slow. GDAL reads individual scanlines via GDreadfield(), and it appears that to read a given scanline all the previous scanlines of this band, and the complete data of previous bands needs to be decompressed. Yikes! I don't know how common use of this sort of compression is in HDF4 EOS_GRID products, but it is super-painful. If this resurfaces as a major issue, we could improve performance by using a larger block size but that still is a pretty poor solution.

Please re-open if you still see bugs with EOS_GRID products.
