#211 closed defect (fixed)

Save EPSG PCS Codes to GeoTIFF

Reported by: warmerdam Owned by: warmerdam
Priority: high Milestone:
Component: default Version: unspecified
Severity: normal Keywords:


I have added the following few lines to gt_wkt_srs.cpp. It seemed a shame not to
take advantage of the EPSG data if it was present. It would be nice if you could
include them. The idea could be extended to look for a GEOGCS string in the same
file if the PROJCS one failed.
/*                        GTIFSetFromOGISDefn()                         */
/*                                                                      */
/*      Write GeoTIFF projection tags from an OGC WKT definition.       */
int GTIFSetFromOGISDefn( GTIF * psGTIF, const char *pszOGCWKT )
/* -------------------------------------------------------------------- */
/*      Handle the projection transformation.                           */
/* -------------------------------------------------------------------- */
    const char *pszProjection = poSRS->GetAttrValue( "PROJECTION" );
// RFJ
 // Find the EPSG projected cs code from the wkt proj cs name
    if (nPCS = atoi(CSVGetField( CSVFilename("horiz_cs.csv"),
poSRS->GetAttrValue("PROJCS"), CC_ApproxString,
  GTIFKeySet(psGTIF, ProjectedCSTypeGeoKey, TYPE_SHORT, 1, nPCS );
  GTIFKeySet(psGTIF, GTModelTypeGeoKey, TYPE_SHORT, 1, ModelTypeProjected);
// RFJ
    if( pszProjection == NULL )

I would add that we should look for EPSG Authority codes in the WKT 
and utilize them if possible.  However, I think the patch needs to change
a little so that even if a PCS code is written that the full parameters
can also still be written.

I did a slightly different form of this based on the authority values within
the WKT.
