#5925 closed enhancement (fixed)

Changes in -wm setting cause non reproducable gdalwarp output with approximate transformer

Reported by: Even Rouault Owned by: warmerdam
Priority: normal Milestone: 2.0.0
Component: Algorithms Version: unspecified
Severity: normal Keywords: warp


When using gdalwarp with the approximate transformer (which is the default), the generated output file may change in subtle way, depending on the value of the -wm setting (or if SRC_FILL_RATIO_HEURISTICS warping option is set or disabled). This is due to the approximate transformer not being invoked with the same starting and ending points, due to the window of each target chunk not being the same, and consequently the interpolated values change.

One way to solve this is to round coordinates resulting from the approximate transformer. A new warping option, SRC_COORD_PRECISION, is added. Its value is in (fractional) pixel. The way it has been implemented, this reliably works only if SRC_COORD_PRECISION is at least 10 times the value of the error threashold (-et parameter of gdalwarp)
