r.in.gdal/v.in.ogr: reprojection at import
|projection import gdal ogr
I would like to float the idea, in order to kick off a discussion: how difficult would it be to implement reprojection at import, both in r.in.gdal and v.in.ogr.
The simplest case would be the import of a data source with known and gdal/ogr-recognizable projection system into a location with a different projection. If the data source does not contain the info about its projection, then the user would have to add that info.
This should complement, not replace the current system of reprojecting from one location to another as this latter system allows more subtle fine-tuning of the process.
