import raster dialog bugs
|Reported by:||cmbarton||Owned by:|
Using GRASS 6.5 from the svn (updated a couple days ago), I just tried to import a non-georeferenced *.tif image in order to test problems in the georectifier and find that the wrapper dialog for r.in.gdal doesn't recognize *.tif files for import, even if geotif is selected in the file type dropdown (the default selection). This DOES work in GRASS 6.4.1, so it is something that is different between the two versions.
Also, the the "load settings" dropdown does not work (the save does). Finally, the dialog is modal meaning no access to GRASS while it is open. Other GRASS dialogs are not modal. Why is this one modal? It is also modal in GRASS 6.4.1.
In 6.5 and 6.4.1, this dialog does not have the means to allow users to create a new location to import a map with a different projection. That is a very handy feature of r.in.gdal. It would be nice if available here too.
I can understand the reason for such a dialog for v.in.ogr, since this is a fairly cryptic module and not easy for normal users to navigate. But is r.in.gdal all that difficult? I'm not sure we've gained anything by this new GUI wrapper, but have lost some functionality.
