GDALSRSINFO(1) GDAL GDALSRSINFO(1)

NAME

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

SYNOPSIS

Usage: gdalsrsinfo [--single-line] [-V] [-e][-o <out_type>] <srs_def>


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)

Print WKT on single line

Validate SRS

Search for EPSG number(s) corresponding to SRS

Output types:
  • default: proj4 and wkt (default option)
  • all: all options available
  • wkt_all: all wkt options available
  • PROJJSON: PROJJSON string (GDAL >= 3.1 and PROJ >= 6.2)
  • 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)


<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)
