GDAL - Datum shift issue (WGS84, NAD27, NAD83)

Reported by: tcgeophysics Owned by: osgeo4w-dev@…
Priority: major Component: Package
Version: Keywords: Datum shift grids NAD27 proj


Hi All,

I am encountering a gdalwarp issue that I have a hard time narrowing down...

I have a Canadian DEM (CDED) in USGS DEM format in Lat/Lon NAD83 (EPSG 4269) and I want to convert it to an ER Mapper ERS format in UTM Zone 16 NAD27 (EPSG 26716).

The command I use is the following:

gdalwarp -s_srs EPSG:4269 -t_srs EPSG:26716 -of ERS 042c_0100_deme.dem 042c_0100_deme_NAD27UTMZ16N.ers

And the output is:

ERROR 1: No such file or directory ERROR 1: GDALSuggestedWarpOutput() failed because the passed transformer failed.

GDAL was installed using osgeo4w.exe installer on my Window 7 machine.

After doing some research it seems that datum shift grids may not be built by default with Proj.4. Is there other dependencies that may affect datum shifts?

How can I check that datum shift grids were built and which ones?

What can be an approach to add other datum shift grids?

Hmm, I'm not at all sure where the "No such file or directory" is coming from. I've tried a somewhat similar command here and it works ok, but this was not on windows:

warmerdam@gdal:~$ gdalwarp -t_srs EPSG:26716 -of ERS utm.tif out.ers
Creating output file that is 644P x 644L.
Processing input file utm.tif.
0...10...20...30...40...50...60...70...80...90...100 - done.

If you set the environment variable PROJ_DEBUG to a value like "4" you should be able to see info in the console when PROJ.4 uses the grid shift files.

Resolution: worksforme
Status: newclosed

quite dated. probably fixed with a later gdal package. feel free to reopen.
