OGR VRT SpatialFilter performance problem

Reported by: tamas Owned by: tamas
Priority: normal Milestone: 1.6.0
Component: OGR_SF Version: svn-trunk
Severity: normal Keywords:


I've found significal performance problems when using large datasets along with the OGR VRT driver. To limit the number of the data to be retrieved I'd use a spatialfilter and the vrt connection string looks something like: <OGRVRTDataSource><OGRVRTLayer name="mylayer"><SrcDataSource>ODBC:gisdata,mylayer</SrcDataSource><SrcLayer>mylayer</SrcLayer><GeometryType>wkbPoint</GeometryType><GeometryField encoding="PointFromColumns" useSpatialSubquery="TRUE" x="lon27" y="lat27"/></OGRVRTLayer></OGRVRTDataSource>

However when the filter geometry is not a rectangle the filter won't be applied. I consider this as a problem, since at least the bbox of the filter geometry should be used to limit the number of the records to be retrieved and the following patch should be applied:

+ if( m_poFilterGeom && bUseSpatialSubquery && eGeometryType == VGS_PointFromColumns )


const char *pszXField, *pszYField;
