NAME

gdalsrsinfo - Lists info about a given SRS in number of formats (WKT, PROJ.4, etc.)

SYNOPSIS

Usage: gdalsrsinfo [options] srs_def
srs_def may be the filename of a dataset supported by GDAL/OGR from which to extract SRS information
OR any of the usual GDAL/OGR forms (complete WKT, PROJ.4, EPSG:n or a file containing the SRS)
Options:
   [--help-general] [-h]  Show help and exit
   [--single-line]        Print WKT on single line
   [-V]                   Validate SRS
   [-e]                   Search for EPSG number(s) corresponding to SRS
   [-o out_type]          Output type { default, all, wkt_all, proj4,
                                        wkt, wkt_simple, wkt_noct, wkt_esri,
                                        wkt2_2015, wkt2_2018, mapinfo, xml }.fi

DESCRIPTION

The gdalsrsinfo utility reports information about a given SRS from one of the following:
  • The filename of a dataset supported by GDAL/OGR which contains SRS information
  • Any of the usual GDAL/OGR forms (complete WKT, PROJ.4, EPSG:n or a file containing the SRS)

Output types:

  • default proj4 and wkt (default option)
  • all all options available
  • wkt_all all wkt options available
  • proj4 PROJ.4 string
  • wkt1 OGC WKT format (full)
  • wkt_simple OGC WKT 1 (simplified)
  • wkt_noct OGC WKT 1 (without OGC CT params)
  • wkt_esri ESRI WKT format
  • wkt Latest WKT version supported, currently wkt2_2018
  • wkt2 Latest WKT2 version supported, currently wkt2_2018
  • wkt2_2015 OGC WKT2:2015
  • wkt2_2018 OGC WKT2:2018
  • mapinfo Mapinfo style CoordSys format
  • xml XML format (GML based)
