USGSDEM driver: file not properly decoded

Reported by: Kosta Owned by: warmerdam
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: GDAL_Raster Version: 1.9.2
Severity: normal Keywords: USGSDEM
Cc: bdiscoe

Description (last modified by Kosta)

When reading values from certain DEM files (see attachment) GDAL runs into an infinite (or perhaps only a very-long running?) loop; e.g.:

gdal_translate -of GTiff Benicia.dem Benicia.tif

Other files of that format with the same file size only need seconds to be processed.

System: Win 7 Enterprise (64-bit)

Problem confirmed with trunk, investigating.

The 4th profile of the Benicia.dem file claims to have 256 values but instead has on the order of 316 which seriously confuses the profile by profile reader.

Adding Ben Discoe who might have suggestions on how to cope with such a file.

The ticket was about GDAL going to infinite loop. If that does not happen any more, can the ticket be closed?

comment:7 by Even Rouault, 8 years ago

This should fix the infinie loop, but the file will not be properly decoded.
