Description Olivier Ertz 2007-05-24 15:40:20 UTC
Description of problem:
Using FC6 for a mapping cartoweb platform, seems gdal from RPM redhat repository
does not support geotiff. It was not configured with --with-geotiff=internal. 

In my humble opinion GeoTiff format is quite crucial for mapping application
using gdal. Therefore I suggest you to rebuild the gdal RPM with the geotiff
flag enabled.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Source RPM: gdal-1.4.1-1.fc6.src.rpm

How reproducible:
Cartoweb for example needs GTiff enabled.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install mapserver
2. Install cartoweb
3. Create a cartoweb application with a geotiff layer
Actual results:
Cartoweb says : no GTiff format supported by gdal

Expected results:
Cartoweb showing the map with the geotiff layer

I wish i could ...

Currently we hit some license issues, so i disable it.
I am still looking forward for clean up that issue.

Please read, for a beter understand of the issue:


Frank W. try to clean up all license issues, i oslo tryed to help him and
rewrote some piece of code.

Hmm pretty annoying.

Comment 3 Balint Cristian 2007-05-24 16:18:11 UTC
i would like keep this bug open till license will be clarifyed.
I pinged EPSG people once again for license calrification.

Comment 4 Olivier Ertz 2007-05-24 20:57:33 UTC
Thanks for comment. I thought perhaps it was a question of licensing, now I'm
sure. I will read the txt file to understand better.

   Please follow bz#249296, we now will have very soon geotiff support plus 
EPSG data set for all gis packages.

    Good news for Fedora GIS !

Hello Oliver !

Now it supports geotiff and geodetic datums :)
As with gdal-1.4.2 one from -devel, so feel free grab it.
