#3955 closed defect (fixed)

ECW EPSG:n coordinate systems not supported.

Reported by: warmerdam Owned by: warmerdam
Priority: normal Milestone: 1.8.1
Component: OGR_SRS Version: unspecified
Severity: normal Keywords: ecw


In recent years it has become common to use EPSG:n as the projection and datum name in ECW files as an alternative to the custom ECW projection definition system. GDAL should support this, at least on read.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Implemented for reading in trunk (r21666) and 1.8 branch (r21667).

It might also be desirable to be able to write in this form. It can be done now if people explicitly set the PROJ and DATUM creation options, but it would be nice if it was more automatic.

Limited testing added in trunk (r21675) and support for writing EPSG:n codes in some cases added in trunk (r21676).
