Detailed Description

This class respresents a OpenGIS Spatial Reference System, and contains methods for converting between this object organization and well known text (WKT) format. This object is reference counted as one instance of the object is normally shared between many OGRGeometry objects.

Normally application code can fetch needed parameter values for this SRS using GetAttrValue(), but in special cases the underlying parse tree (or OGR_SRSNode objects) can be accessed more directly.

See the tutorial for more information on how to use this class.


Constructor & Destructor Documentation

OGRSpatialReference::OGRSpatialReference ( const char *  pszWKT = NULL  ) 

Constructor.

This constructor takes an optional string argument which if passed should be a WKT representation of an SRS. Passing this is equivalent to not passing it, and then calling importFromWkt() with the WKT string.

Note that newly created objects are given a reference count of one.

The C function OSRNewSpatialReference() does the same thing as this constructor.

Parameters:
pszWKT well known text definition to which the object should be initialized, or NULL (the default).

References importFromWkt().

OGRSpatialReference::~OGRSpatialReference (  )  [virtual]

OGRSpatialReference destructor.

The C function OSRDestroySpatialReference() does the same thing as this method. Preferred C++ method : OGRSpatialReference::DestroySpatialReference()

Deprecated:

Member Function Documentation

OGRErr OGRSpatialReference::AutoIdentifyEPSG (  ) 

Set EPSG authority info if possible.

This method inspects a WKT definition, and adds EPSG authority nodes where an aspect of the coordinate system can be easily and safely corresponded with an EPSG identifier. In practice, this method will evolve over time. In theory it can add authority nodes for any object (ie. spheroid, datum, GEOGCS, units, and PROJCS) that could have an authority node. Mostly this is useful to inserting appropriate PROJCS codes for common formulations (like UTM n WGS84).

If it success the OGRSpatialReference is updated in place, and the method return OGRERR_NONE. If the method fails to identify the general coordinate system OGRERR_UNSUPPORTED_SRS is returned but no error message is posted via CPLError().

This method is the same as the C function OSRAutoIdentifyEPSG().

Returns:
OGRERR_NONE or OGRERR_UNSUPPORTED_SRS.

References GetAuthorityCode(), GetAuthorityName(), GetUTMZone(), IsGeographic(), IsProjected(), and SetAuthority().

void OGRSpatialReference::Clear (  ) 

Wipe current definition.

Returns OGRSpatialReference to a state with no definition, as it exists when first created. It does not affect reference counts.

OGRSpatialReference * OGRSpatialReference::Clone (  )  const

Make a duplicate of this OGRSpatialReference.

This method is the same as the C function OSRClone().

Returns:
a new SRS, which becomes the responsibility of the caller.

The GEOGCS information is copied into this OGRSpatialReference from another. If this object has a PROJCS root already, the GEOGCS is installed within it, otherwise it is installed as the root.

Parameters:
poSrcSRS the spatial reference to copy the GEOGCS information from.
Returns:
OGRERR_NONE on success or an error code.

The method does the same thing as the C function OSRDereference().

Returns:
the updated reference count.

Referenced by Release().

void OGRSpatialReference::DestroySpatialReference ( OGRSpatialReference poSRS  )  [static]

OGRSpatialReference destructor.

This static method will destroy a OGRSpatialReference. It is equivalent to calling delete on the object, but it ensures that the deallocation is properly executed within the OGR libraries heap on platforms where this can matter (win32).

This function is the same as OSRDestroySpatialReference()

Parameters:
poSRS the object to delete
Since:
GDAL 1.7.0
int OGRSpatialReference::EPSGTreatsAsLatLong (  ) 

This method returns TRUE if EPSG feels this geographic coordinate system should be treated as having lat/long coordinate ordering.

Currently this returns TRUE for all geographic coordinate systems with an EPSG code set, and AXIS values set defining it as lat, long. Note that coordinate systems with an EPSG code and no axis settings will be assumed to not be lat/long.

FALSE will be returned for all coordinate systems that are not geographic, or that do not have an EPSG code set.

This method is the same as the C function OSREPSGTreatsAsLatLong().

Returns:
TRUE or FALSE.

int OGRSpatialReference::EPSGTreatsAsNorthingEasting (  ) 

This method returns TRUE if EPSG feels this projected coordinate system should be treated as having northing/easting coordinate ordering.

Currently this returns TRUE for all projected coordinate systems with an EPSG code set, and AXIS values set defining it as northing, easting.

FALSE will be returned for all coordinate systems that are not projected, or that do not have an EPSG code set.

This method is the same as the C function EPSGTreatsAsNorthingEasting().

Returns:
TRUE or FALSE.

Parameters:
ppszProj pointer to which dynamically allocated PCI projection definition will be assigned.
ppszUnits pointer to which dynamically allocated units definition will be assigned.
ppadfPrjParams pointer to which dynamically allocated array of 17 projection parameters will be assigned. See importFromPCI() for the list of parameters.

OGRErr OGRSpatialReference::exportToProj4 ( char **  ppszProj4  )  const

Export coordinate system in PROJ.4 format.

Converts the loaded coordinate reference system into PROJ.4 format to the extent possible. The string returned in ppszProj4 should be deallocated by the caller with CPLFree() when no longer needed.

LOCAL_CS coordinate systems are not translatable. An empty string will be returned along with OGRERR_NONE.

Special processing for Transverse Mercator with GDAL >= 1.10 and PROJ >= 4.8 : if the OSR_USE_ETMERC configuration option is set to YES, the PROJ.4 definition built from the SRS will use the 'etmerc' projection method, rather than the default 'tmerc'. This will give better accuracy (at the expense of computational speed) when reprojection occurs near the edges of the validity area for the projection.

This method is the equivelent of the C function OSRExportToProj4().

Parameters:
ppszProj4 pointer to which dynamically allocated PROJ.4 definition will be assigned.
Returns:
OGRERR_NONE on success or an error code on failure.

OGRErr OGRSpatialReference::Fixup (  ) 

Fixup as needed.

Some mechanisms to create WKT using OGRSpatialReference, and some imported WKT, are not valid according to the OGC CT specification. This method attempts to fill in any missing defaults that are required, and fixup ordering problems (using OSRFixupOrdering()) so that the resulting WKT is valid.

This method should be expected to evolve over time to as problems are discovered. The following are amoung the fixup actions this method will take:

  • Fixup the ordering of nodes to match the BNF WKT ordering, using the FixupOrdering() method.
  • Add missing linear or angular units nodes.

This method is the same as the C function OSRFixup().

Returns:
OGRERR_NONE on success or an error code if something goes wrong.

OGRErr OGRSpatialReference::FixupOrdering (  ) 

Correct parameter ordering to match CT Specification.

Some mechanisms to create WKT using OGRSpatialReference, and some imported WKT fail to maintain the order of parameters required according to the BNF definitions in the OpenGIS SF-SQL and CT Specifications. This method attempts to massage things back into the required order.

This method is the same as the C function OSRFixupOrdering().

Returns:
OGRERR_NONE on success or an error code if something goes wrong.

double OGRSpatialReference::GetAngularUnits ( char **  ppszName = NULL  )  const

Fetch angular geographic coordinate system units.

If no units are available, a value of "degree" and SRS_UA_DEGREE_CONV will be assumed. This method only checks directly under the GEOGCS node for units.

This method does the same thing as the C function OSRGetAngularUnits().

Parameters:
ppszName a pointer to be updated with the pointer to the units name. The returned value remains internal to the OGRSpatialReference and shouldn't be freed, or modified. It may be invalidated on the next OGRSpatialReference call.

OGR_SRSNode * OGRSpatialReference::GetAttrNode ( const char *  pszNodePath  ) 

Find named node in tree.

This method does a pre-order traversal of the node tree searching for a node with this exact value (case insensitive), and returns it. Leaf nodes are not considered, under the assumption that they are just attribute value nodes.

If a node appears more than once in the tree (such as UNIT for instance), the first encountered will be returned. Use GetNode() on a subtree to be more specific.

Parameters:
pszNodePath the name of the node to search for. May contain multiple components such as "GEOGCS|UNIT".
Returns:
a pointer to the node found, or NULL if none.

const char * OGRSpatialReference::GetAttrValue ( const char *  pszNodeName,
int  iAttr = 0 
) const

Fetch indicated attribute of named node.

This method uses GetAttrNode() to find the named node, and then extracts the value of the indicated child. Thus a call to GetAttrValue("UNIT",1) would return the second child of the UNIT node, which is normally the length of the linear unit in meters.

This method does the same thing as the C function OSRGetAttrValue().

Parameters:
pszNodeName the tree node to look for (case insensitive).
iAttr the child of the node to fetch (zero based).
Returns:
the requested value, or NULL if it fails for any reason.

const char * OGRSpatialReference::GetAuthorityCode ( const char *  pszTargetKey  )  const

Get the authority code for a node.

This method is used to query an AUTHORITY[] node from within the WKT tree, and fetch the code value.

While in theory values may be non-numeric, for the EPSG authority all code values should be integral.

This method is the same as the C function OSRGetAuthorityCode().

Parameters:

OGRErr OGRSpatialReference::importFromDict ( const char *  pszDictFile,
const char *  pszCode

Read SRS from WKT dictionary.

This method will attempt to find the indicated coordinate system identity in the indicated dictionary file. If found, the WKT representation is imported and used to initialize this OGRSpatialReference.

More complete information on the format of the dictionary files can be found in the epsg.wkt file in the GDAL data tree. The dictionary files are searched for in the "GDAL" domain using CPLFindFile(). Normally this results in searching /usr/local/share/gdal or somewhere similar.

This method is the same as the C function OSRImportFromDict().

Parameters:
pszDictFile the name of the dictionary file to load.
pszCode the code to lookup in the dictionary.
Returns:
OGRERR_NONE on success, or OGRERR_SRS_UNSUPPORTED if the code isn't found, and OGRERR_SRS_FAILURE if something more dramatic goes wrong.

OGRErr OGRSpatialReference::importFromEPSG ( int  nCode  ) 

Initialize SRS based on EPSG GCS or PCS code.

This method will initialize the spatial reference based on the passed in EPSG GCS or PCS code. The coordinate system definitions are normally read from the EPSG derived support files such as pcs.csv, gcs.csv, pcs.override.csv, gcs.override.csv and falling back to search for a PROJ.4 epsg init file or a definition in epsg.wkt.

These support files are normally searched for in /usr/local/share/gdal or in the directory identified by the GDAL_DATA configuration option. See CPLFindFile() for details.

This method is relatively expensive, and generally involves quite a bit of text file scanning. Reasonable efforts should be made to avoid calling it many times for the same coordinate system.

This method is similar to importFromEPSGA() except that EPSG preferred axis ordering will *not* be applied for geographic coordinate systems. EPSG normally defines geographic coordinate systems to use lat/long contrary to typical GIS use). Since OGR 1.10.0, EPSG preferred axis ordering will also *not* be applied for projected coordinate systems that use northing/easting order.

This method is the same as the C function OSRImportFromEPSG().

Parameters:
nCode a GCS or PCS code from the horizontal coordinate system table.
Returns:
OGRERR_NONE on success, or an error code on failure.

OGRErr OGRSpatialReference::importFromESRI ( char **  papszPrj  ) 

Import coordinate system from ESRI .prj format(s).

This function will read the text loaded from an ESRI .prj file, and translate it into an OGRSpatialReference definition. This should support many (but by no means all) old style (Arc/Info 7.x) .prj files, as well as the newer pseudo-OGC WKT .prj files. Note that new style .prj files are in OGC WKT format, but require some manipulation to correct datum names, and units on some projection parameters. This is addressed within importFromESRI() by an automatical call to morphFromESRI().

Currently only GEOGRAPHIC, UTM, STATEPLANE, GREATBRITIAN_GRID, ALBERS, EQUIDISTANT_CONIC, TRANSVERSE (mercator), POLAR, MERCATOR and POLYCONIC projections are supported from old style files.

At this time there is no equivelent exportToESRI() method. Writing old style .prj files is not supported by OGRSpatialReference. However the morphToESRI() and exportToWkt() methods can be used to generate output suitable to write to new style (Arc 8) .prj files.

This function is the equilvelent of the C function OSRImportFromESRI().

Parameters:
papszPrj NULL terminated list of strings containing the definition.
Returns:
OGRERR_NONE on success or an error code in case of failure.

OGRErr OGRSpatialReference::importFromProj4 ( const char *  pszProj4  ) 

Import PROJ.4 coordinate string.

The OGRSpatialReference is initialized from the passed PROJ.4 style coordinate system string. In addition to many +proj formulations which have OGC equivelents, it is also possible to import "+init=epsg:n" style definitions. These are passed to importFromEPSG(). Other init strings (such as the state plane zones) are not currently supported.

Example: pszProj4 = "+proj=utm +zone=11 +datum=WGS84"

Some parameters, such as grids, recognised by PROJ.4 may not be well understood and translated into the OGRSpatialReference model. It is possible to add the +wktext parameter which is a special keyword that OGR recognises as meaning "embed the entire PROJ.4 string in the WKT and use it literally when converting back to PROJ.4 format".

For example: "+proj=nzmg +lat_0=-41 +lon_0=173 +x_0=2510000 +y_0=6023150 +ellps=intl +units=m +nadgrids=nzgd2kgrid0005.gsb +wktext"

will be translated as :

 PROJCS["unnamed",

        DATUM["unknown",
            SPHEROID["intl",6378388,297]],

Special processing for 'etmerc' (GDAL >= 1.10 ): if +proj=etmerc is found in the passed string, the SRS built will use the WKT representation for a standard Transverse Mercator, but will aso include a PROJ4 EXTENSION node to preserve the etmerc projection method.

For example: "+proj=etmerc +lat_0=0 +lon_0=9 +k=0.9996 +units=m +x_0=500000 +datum=WGS84"

OGRErr OGRSpatialReference::importFromUrl ( const char *  pszUrl  ) 

Set spatial reference from a URL.

This method will download the spatial reference at a given URL and feed it into SetFromUserInput for you.

This method does the same thing as the OSRImportFromUrl() function.

Parameters:
pszUrl text definition to try to deduce SRS from.
Returns:
OGRERR_NONE on success, or an error code with the curl error message if it is unable to dowload data.

OGRErr OGRSpatialReference::importFromURN ( const char *  pszURN  ) 

Initialize from OGC URN.

Initializes this spatial reference from a coordinate system defined by an OGC URN prefixed with "urn:ogc:def:crs:" per recommendation paper 06-023r1. Currently EPSG and OGC authority values are supported, including OGC auto codes, but not including CRS1 or CRS88 (NAVD88).

This method is also support through SetFromUserInput() which can normally be used for URNs.

Parameters:
pszURN the urn string.
Returns:
OGRERR_NONE on success or an error code.

OGRErr OGRSpatialReference::importFromUSGS ( long  iProjSys,
long  iZone,
double *  padfPrjParams,
long  iDatum,
int  nUSGSAngleFormat = TRUE 
)

Import coordinate system from USGS projection definition.

This method will import projection definition in style, used by USGS GCTP software. GCTP operates on angles in packed DMS format (see CPLDecToPackedDMS() function for details), so all angle values (latitudes, longitudes, azimuths, etc.) specified in the padfPrjParams array should be in the packed DMS format, unless bAnglesInPackedDMSFormat is set to FALSE.

This function is the equivalent of the C function OSRImportFromUSGS(). Note that the bAnglesInPackedDMSFormat parameter is only present in the C++ method. The C function assumes bAnglesInPackedFormat = TRUE.

Parameters:
iProjSys Input projection system code, used in GCTP.
iZone Input zone for UTM and State Plane projection systems. For Southern Hemisphere UTM use a negative zone code. iZone ignored for all other projections.
padfPrjParams Array of 15 coordinate system parameters. These parameters differs for different projections.

Parameters:
iDatum Input spheroid.

If the datum code is negative, the first two values in the parameter array (parm) are used to define the values as follows:

  • If padfPrjParams[0] is a non-zero value and padfPrjParams[1] is greater than one, the semimajor axis is set to padfPrjParams[0] and the semiminor axis is set to padfPrjParams[1].

  • If padfPrjParams[0] is nonzero and padfPrjParams[1] is greater than zero but less than or equal to one, the semimajor axis is set to padfPrjParams[0] and the semiminor axis is computed from the eccentricity squared value padfPrjParams[1]:

    semiminor = sqrt(1.0 - ES) * semimajor

    where

    ES = eccentricity squared

  • If padfPrjParams[0] is nonzero and padfPrjParams[1] is equal to zero, the semimajor axis and semiminor axis are set to padfPrjParams[0].

  • If padfPrjParams[0] equals zero and padfPrjParams[1] is greater than zero, the default Clarke 1866 is used to assign values to the semimajor axis and semiminor axis.

  • If padfPrjParams[0] and padfPrjParams[1] equals zero, the semimajor axis is set to 6370997.0 and the semiminor axis is set to zero.

If a datum code is zero or greater, the semimajor and semiminor axis are defined by the datum code as found in the following table:

Only as much of the input string as needed to construct this SRS is consumed from the input string, and the input string pointer is then updated to point to the remaining (unused) input.

This method is the same as the C function OSRImportFromWkt().

Parameters:
ppszInput Pointer to pointer to input. The pointer is updated to point to remaining unused input text.
Returns:
OGRERR_NONE if import succeeds, or OGRERR_CORRUPT_DATA if it fails for any reason.

OGRErr OGRSpatialReference::morphFromESRI (  ) 

Convert in place from ESRI WKT format.

The value notes of this coordinate system are modified in various manners to adhere more closely to the WKT standard. This mostly involves translating a variety of ESRI names for projections, arguments and datums to "standard" names, as defined by Adam Gawne-Cain's reference translation of EPSG to WKT for the CT specification.

Starting with GDAL 1.9.0, missing parameters in TOWGS84, DATUM or GEOGCS nodes can be added to the WKT, comparing existing WKT parameters to GDAL's databases. Note that this optional procedure is very conservative and should not introduce false information into the WKT defintion (altough caution should be advised when activating it). Needs the Configuration Option GDAL_FIX_ESRI_WKT be set to one of the following values (TOWGS84 is recommended for proper datum shift calculations):

GDAL_FIX_ESRI_WKT values

  TOWGS84  Adds missing TOWGS84 parameters (necessary for datum transformations), based on named datum and spheroid values.
  DATUM  Adds EPSG AUTHORITY nodes and sets SPHEROID name to OGR spec.
  GEOGCS  Adds EPSG AUTHORITY nodes and sets GEOGCS, DATUM and SPHEROID names to OGR spec. Effectively replaces GEOGCS node with the result of importFromEPSG(n), using EPSG code n corresponding to the existing GEOGCS. Does not impact PROJCS values.

This does the same as the C function OSRMorphFromESRI().

Returns:
OGRERR_NONE unless something goes badly wrong.

OGRErr OGRSpatialReference::SetFromUserInput ( const char *  pszDefinition  ) 

Set spatial reference from various text formats.

This method will examine the provided input, and try to deduce the format, and then use it to initialize the spatial reference system. It may take the following forms:

  1. Well Known Text definition - passed on to importFromWkt().
  2. "EPSG:n" - number passed on to importFromEPSG().
  3. "EPSGA:n" - number passed on to importFromEPSGA().
  4. "AUTO:proj_id,unit_id,lon0,lat0" - WMS auto projections.
  5. "urn:ogc:def:crs:EPSG::n" - ogc urns
  6. PROJ.4 definitions - passed on to importFromProj4().
  7. filename - file read for WKT, XML or PROJ.4 definition.
  8. well known name accepted by SetWellKnownGeogCS(), such as NAD27, NAD83, WGS84 or WGS72.
  9. WKT (directly or in a file) in ESRI format should be prefixed with ESRI:: to trigger an automatic morphFromESRI().
  10. "IGNF:xxx" - "+init=IGNF:xxx" passed on to importFromProj4().

It is expected that this method will be extended in the future to support XML and perhaps a simplified "minilanguage" for indicating common UTM and State Plane definitions.

This method is intended to be flexible, but by it's nature it is imprecise as it must guess information about the format intended. When possible applications should call the specific method appropriate if the input is known to be in a particular format.

This method does the same thing as the OSRSetFromUserInput() function.

Parameters:
pszDefinition text definition to try to deduce SRS from.
Returns:
OGRERR_NONE on success, or an error code if the name isn't recognised, the definition is corrupt, or an EPSG value can't be successfully looked up.

Set State Plane projection definition.

State Plane

This will attempt to generate a complete definition of a state plane zone based on generating the entire SRS from the EPSG tables. If the EPSG tables are unavailable, it will produce a stubbed LOCAL_CS definition and return OGRERR_FAILURE.

This method is the same as the C function OSRSetStatePlaneWithUnits().

Parameters:
nZone State plane zone number, in the USGS numbering scheme (as dinstinct from the Arc/Info and Erdas numbering scheme.
bNAD83 TRUE if the NAD83 zone definition should be used or FALSE if the NAD27 zone definition should be used.
pszOverrideUnitName Linear unit name to apply overriding the legal definition for this zone.
dfOverrideUnit Linear unit conversion factor to apply overriding the legal definition for this zone.
Returns:
OGRERR_NONE on success, or OGRERR_FAILURE on failure, mostly likely due to the EPSG tables not being accessable.

Set the Bursa-Wolf conversion to WGS84.

This will create the TOWGS84 node as a child of the DATUM. It will fail if there is no existing DATUM node. Unlike most OGRSpatialReference methods it will insert itself in the appropriate order, and will replace an existing TOWGS84 node if there is one.

The parameters have the same meaning as EPSG transformation 9606 (Position Vector 7-param. transformation).

This method is the same as the C function OSRSetTOWGS84().

Parameters:
dfDX X child in meters.
dfDY Y child in meters.
dfDZ Z child in meters.
dfEX X rotation in arc seconds (optional, defaults to zero).
dfEY Y rotation in arc seconds (optional, defaults to zero).
dfEZ Z rotation in arc seconds (optional, defaults to zero).
dfPPM scaling factor (parts per million).

OGRErr OGRSpatialReference::SetWellKnownGeogCS ( const char *  pszName  ) 

Set a GeogCS based on well known name.

This may be called on an empty OGRSpatialReference to make a geographic coordinate system, or on something with an existing PROJCS node to set the underlying geographic coordinate system of a projected coordinate system.

The following well known text values are currently supported:

  • "WGS84": same as "EPSG:4326" but has no dependence on EPSG data files.
  • "WGS72": same as "EPSG:4322" but has no dependence on EPSG data files.
  • "NAD27": same as "EPSG:4267" but has no dependence on EPSG data files.
  • "NAD83": same as "EPSG:4269" but has no dependence on EPSG data files.
  • "EPSG:n": same as doing an ImportFromEPSG(n).
Parameters:
pszName name of well known geographic coordinate system.
Returns:
OGRERR_NONE on success, or OGRERR_FAILURE if the name isn't recognised, the target object is already initialized, or an EPSG value can't be successfully looked up.

OGRErr OGRSpatialReference::StripCTParms ( OGR_SRSNode poCurrent = NULL  ) 

Strip OGC CT Parameters.

This method will remove all components of the coordinate system that are specific to the OGC CT Specification. That is it will attempt to strip it down to being compatible with the Simple Features 1.0 specification.

This method is the same as the C function OSRStripCTParms().

Parameters:
poCurrent node to operate on. NULL to operate on whole tree.
Returns:
OGRERR_NONE on success or an error code.

OGRErr OGRSpatialReference::StripVertical (  ) 

Convert a compound cs into a horizontal CS.

If this SRS is of type COMPD_CS[] then the vertical CS and the root COMPD_CS nodes are stripped resulting and only the horizontal coordinate system portion remains (normally PROJCS, GEOGCS or LOCAL_CS).

If this is not a compound coordinate system then nothing is changed.

OGRErr OGRSpatialReference::Validate (  ) 

Validate SRS tokens.

This method attempts to verify that the spatial reference system is well formed, and consists of known tokens. The validation is not comprehensive.

This method is the same as the C function OSRValidate().

Returns:
OGRERR_NONE if all is fine, OGRERR_CORRUPT_DATA if the SRS is not well formed, and OGRERR_UNSUPPORTED_SRS if the SRS is well formed, but contains non-standard PROJECTION[] values.
