r.out.gdal: Add notes about bigtiff and example with BIGTIFF=YES (or similar) to manual

Description

In r.out.gdal I get Error 1 Maximum TIFF file size exceeded. Use BIGTIFF=YES. Would be great if GRASS could use BIGTIFF=IF_NEEDED/IF_SAFER by default when exporting GeoTiff or if it could compute the required creation option from region size, number of bands and data type...

Replying to sbl:

In r.out.gdal I get Error 1 Maximum TIFF file size exceeded. Use BIGTIFF=YES. Would be great if GRASS could use BIGTIFF=IF_NEEDED/IF_SAFER by default when exporting GeoTiff or if it could compute the required creation option from region size, number of bands and data type...

The idea of using GDAL/OGR is that the code does not need to bother about format-specific options. By now GRASS code does take care of some special formats to prevent errors and/or to follow GDAL instructions, but for code maintenance I would like to keep this to a minimum.

There is a reason (on the GDAL side) why BIGTIFF=YES is not the default: not all (Geo)Tiff drivers support BIGTIFF.

Thanks for the swift feedback! Point taken. Changed into a documentation ticket (that I could fix myself).
