#1237 new defect

ST_SpatialRefSys data type (sql/mm)

Reported by: strk Owned by: pramsey
Priority: medium Milestone: PostGIS Fund Me
Component: postgis Version: master
Keywords: Cc:

Description

SQL/MM wants an ST_SpatialRefSys datatype. The type can be constructed by well-known-text representation of the projection or by SRID and can yeld both in output.

For practical purposes such type may be used to parse .prj content in shapefiles and look for corresponding SRID in database.

GDAL has such an object, in case we'll make it a mandatory dependency:

ST_Distance_Spheroid would be happy to get spheroid out of it and get rid of "ugly" WKT representation. :-)
