ST_Clip ERROR: rt_raster_from_two_rasters: The two rasters provided do not have the same alignment

Reported by: sergeish Owned by: robe
Priority: medium Milestone: PostGIS 3.3.0
Component: raster Version: master
Keywords: Cc:


Called from RASTER_clip (ST_Clip), rt_raster_gdal_rasterize can produce mask raster that is not aligned with input raster.

In our case, the input geometry's (h3 index polygon) max. Y coordinate just happens to be within FLT_EPSILON distance from input raster Y coordinate. This causes alignment step in rt_raster_gdal_rasterize to be skipped rt_raster.c:3075

Later in RASTER_clip -> rt_raster_from_two_rasters -> rt_raster_same_alignment -> rt_raster_geopoint_to_cell rt_rpatial_relationship.c:91 the difference get magnified by 1/scale (scale = 8.3333333333338033e-05) and position of upper left corner relative to raster becomes (0, -1) rt_raster.c:831 so alignment check correctly fails.

Possible solutions for fixing alignment check in rt_raster_gdal_rasterize rt_raster.c:3075:

  • take scale into account when checking if raster is already aligned, like (FLT_EQ(fabs(grid_yw - extent.UpperLestY) / scale, 0.0) for scale < 1.0);
  • replace FLT_EQ with DBL_EQ.

Is there a reason for using FLT_EQ for comparing doubles throughout raster code? This issue will be resolved as a special case if DBL_EQ is used instead.

As I recall there was an issue a long time ago like pre GDAL 2.0 with using double precision compare in postgis raster. I forget what it was. I suspect it's not relevant anymore, so I'd go ahead and flip to DBL_EQ if it fixes this.
