Description

Hello Frank,
We are trying to read a US state Plane, NAD 1927, US Survey Feet projection 
from a TIFF file. The projection is valid and can be successfully read using 
other tiff readers. When we are trying to retreive the information using 
pDataset->GetProjectionRef() call, the following string is returned:

PROJCS["unnamed",GEOGCS["NAD27",DATUM["North_American_Datum_1927",SPHEROID
["Clarke 1866",6378206.4,294.9786982139006,AUTHORITY["EPSG","7008"]],AUTHORITY
["EPSG","6267"]],PRIMEM["Greenwich",0],UNIT
["degree",0.0174532925199433],AUTHORITY["EPSG","4267"]],UNIT
["unknown",1],AUTHORITY["EPSG","26771"]]

which does not have sufficient parameters to correctly describe the coordinate 
system.
The example file can be downloaded from:

Thanks in advance!
