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
          [-p]                   Pretty-print where applicable (e.g. WKT)
          [-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,
                                               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

       · wkt   OGC WKT format (full)

       · wkt_simple   OGC WKT (simplified)

       · wkt_noct   OGC WKT (without OGC CT params)

       · wkt_esri   ESRI WKT format

       · mapinfo   Mapinfo style CoordSys format

       · xml   XML format (GML based)
