#3640 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Support additional cases of GCS name mapping in morphToESRI

Reported by: johncz711 Owned by: warmerdam
Priority: normal Milestone: closed_because_of_github_migration
Component: OGR_SRS Version: 1.7.2
Severity: normal Keywords:


The following name mapping entries can be added to the apszGcsNameMapping array found in ogr_srs_esri_names.h:

"JGD2000", "GCS_JGD_2000",

"NZGD2000", "GCS_NZGD_2000",

"RT90", "GCS_RT_1990",


These are all cases where the generic replacement of special characters with underbars and the addition of the "GCS_" prefix do not produce the desired name within morphToESRI. The desired names are seen in the WKT in .prj delivered with ArcMap 9.3.

A suitably modified copy of ogr_srs_esri_names.h is in the attached zip.

I am new to GDAL/OGR, having just added to my (non-ESRI-based) platform a subset of OGR code, for the sole purpose of creating WKT and writing it as .prj files.

I found "JGD2000", "GCS_JGD_2000" from ogr_srs_esri_names.h (GDAL 2.0-dev) but not the three others.
