wingrass: 'g.region -l' fails when using a NTv2 grid file

Reported by: hamish Owned by: grass-dev@…

Description

Hi,

on a new wingrass 6.5svn nightly build, in the spearfish dataset, 'g.region -l' fails with an error.

ERROR: Unable to update lat/long projection parameters

running again with export PROJ_DEBUG=5 on the msys rxvt terminal line shows:

pj_open_lib(proj_def.dat):
   call fopen(c:/Program Files/GRASS-65-SVN/etc/nad/proj_def.dat) - failed

(in the wingrass builds that file is in $GISBASE/proj/)

$PROJ_LIB is already set by the startup script:

GRASS 6.5> echo $PROJ_LIB 
C:\Program Files\GRASS-65-SVN\proj

?

thanks, Hamish

I had reported this to PROJ as http://trac.osgeo.org/proj/ticket/81

FrankW has identified the problem (which only occurred for him when proj_def.dat could not be found) and fixed it (http://trac.osgeo.org/proj/changeset/1914). All this happened only in proj-trunk.

I can confirm that this problem has been solved for at least Linux but I assume that the solution is general.

Right. as seen in #1166, this is 4.7.1svn:

Rel. 4.7.1, 23 September 2009

so am I right in thinking that osgeow4 is shipping development versions instead of stable releases? bad osgeo4w. no cupcake for you.

4.7.0 shipped with the wrong version number hardcoded.

Promise of cupcake restored? I don't know whether the suggestion by Markus
at the end of that thread got implemented?

Roger

so I'm back to being confused by this. Note in #1166 proj_def.dat is correctly found by cs2cs, although $PROJ_LIB there is probably being used by the cs2cs app not the lib (the lib already knows where it is and to set that would be recursive).

I've tried in a self built WinGrass6.4.1RC1-installer with the nc-dataset:

very strange:

(1) tried with WinGRASS-6.4.SVN-r45671-1-Setup.exe in nc-sample-data-set. it's working.

(2) tried with WinGRASS-6.4.SVN-r45671-1-Setup.exe in spearfish-sample dataset:

GRASS 6.4> g.region -l
WARNUNG: pj_transform() fehlgeschlagen: failed to load datum shift file
FEHLER: Fehler in pj_do_proj (Projektion des Eingabekoordinatenpaars).

maybe there's something wrong with the sample dataset?

because also tested with a ETRS_1989_LAEA- and a Transverse Mercator (hermannskogel)-location. g.region -l is working.

[spearfish]

WARNUNG: pj_transform() fehlgeschlagen: failed to load datum shift file

ok, so perhaps a spaces in pathnames problem. look for the +nadgrids= filename from 'g.proj -p'.

maybe there's something wrong with the sample dataset?

seeing that spearfish is the most-tested dataset out there, if there was a problem there I think we would have found it by now.

another thing to try: 'g.region -d' before 'g.region -l'.

oh, something else I just remembered-- does the grid file actually exist on the hard drive?

ISTR that part of the big osgeo4w patch last month included a line where, for reasons unknown to me, it commented out the line where the grid files got installed.

could you check if they are still in c:/Program Files/GRASS 6.*/etc/nad/?

Keywords: NTv2 added
Milestone: 6.4.16.4.2
Summary: wingrass: 'g.region -l' failswingrass: 'g.region -l' fails when using a NTv2 grid file
  • bug still present in wingrass native 6.4.svn r48373 (Sept 2011) + spearfish.
  • $PROJ_LIB/conus file exists.
  • assume you'll get the same error with any projection which uses a NTv2 grid file.
  • the missing $GISBASE/etc/nad/proj_def.dat file is in $PROJ_LIB.
  • copying proj_def.dat into $GISBASE/etc/nad/ gets a bit further, but still breaks with an unquoted pathname error. (see next post)

running with export PROJ_DEBUG=5 on the msys rxvt terminal line with proj_def.dat copied into $GISBASE/etc/nad/ now shows:

I can confirm that this breaks not just with the conus grid file, but with any grid file.
