Upsidedown (and rotated?) Rasters Not Supported

Reported by: warmerdam Owned by: warmerdam
Priority: major: does not work as expected Milestone: Branch - Raster Transparency
Component: Rasters Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:
Must Fix for Release: No Platform: Debian
Platform Version: Awaiting user input: no


Upside rasters (that is the top is further south than the bottom) do not appear to be supported by the qgsrasterlayer code. If one is opened (as the only object) an empty extent is established for the map. I'm guessing this is because the min/max values in the layer extent are backwards.

Type: defectenhancement

In the raster tranparency branch I have made changes (r7430) that will place rotated/sheared/upsidedown images in the right portion of the map, but without the correct orientation. Because this is a fairly serious failure still, an interactive warning is issued to the user.

This lets folks *see* these images, but the failure to orient them right means they won't overlay other layers properly - still quite a serious bug. So on that basis I'm leaving this bug open in the hopes that at some point we will rework the raster layer sufficient to display non-northup images properly. This will require substantial work.

Actually, as I think about it, another alternative used by some other software packages (ie. Cadcorp SIS) is to create a GDAL "warped VRT" in memory that will take care of resampling on the fly within GDAL.

I have applied r7435 which rips out the changes from r7430 and replaces it with used of a "gdal warped vrt". This will render rotated, upside down and even "gcp controlled" images in the proper place. There is an outstanding issue of recognising nodata areas that may need action but that isn't the point of this particular bug report so I'm closing.
