#6152 closed defect (fixed)

ogr2ogr crashes with CSV containing empty (NULL) geometry

Reported by: rtorre Owned by: Even Rouault
Priority: normal Milestone: 2.1.0
Component: OGR_SF Version: svn-trunk
Severity: normal Keywords: ogr2ogr, csv_drv, GEOM_POSSIBLE_NAMES
Cc: Even Rouault


ogr2ogr crashes when trying to import a csv using the GEOM_POSSIBLE_NAMES option when the referenced column contains empty (NULL) values:

$ ogr2ogr \
  -f PostgreSQL PG:"host=localhost port=5432 user=postgres dbname=tests" \
  -oo GEOM_POSSIBLE_NAMES=the_geom \

ERROR 1: Invalid index : 3
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Interestingly it does not crash if:

  • KEEP_GEOM_COLUMNS=NO is not used or set to YES, or
  • the_geom has non-null values in all rows.
