Gdal envi driver can no longer read complex dataset
|Reported by:||jmichel||Owned by:||warmerdam|
Description (last modified by )
When trying to read complex data with envi header using gdal 1.6.2, the following error occurs:
ERROR 1: The file does not have a value for the data type that is recognised by the GDAL ENVI driver.
This come from the following commented lines (frmts/raw/envidataset.cpp:1791):
/* Removed JBP, ITT-VIS 11/29/2007. Complex data does not display properly in the ArcGIS application so we are removing it from the supported types list. This is a bit of a big hammer as it may remove functionality from some direct GDAL users, but this data is extremely problematic from an ArcGIS standpoint. */ /* case 6: eType = GDT_CFloat32; break; case 9: eType = GDT_CFloat64; break; */
No wonder why I can not use my dataset anymore. I must say that I'm very surprised that every gdal users looses a valuable (SAR users will agree for sure) supported dataset types just to accommodate one software which is not able to display complex data.
