In my case the output layer of a GRASS GIS 7 command always has a generated CRS:

+proj=tmerc +lat_0=0 +lon_0=16.33333333333333 +k=1 +x_0=0 +y_0=-5000000 +ellps=bessel +units=m +no_defs

The CRS of the project and the input layers is MGI / Austria GK East (+proj=tmerc +lat_0=0 +lon_0=16.33333333333333 +k=1 +x_0=0 +y_0=-5000000 +ellps=bessel +towgs84=577.326,90.129,463.919,5.137,1.474,5.297,2.4232 +units=m +no_defs).

WGS 84 (4326) input layers seem to work properly. I haven’t tested other CRS so far.

From the prj files of the shapes:

Created in QGIS:

Output of v.clean via QGIS-toolbox

Imported into a new grass project; exported again

(... is identical)

So the names of the CRS and the Datum differ, but the rest seems okay.

  • OS version set to 10
  • Operating System set to Windows

So apparently +towgs params are stripped. I confirm this for Windows, whereas on Debian it works fine (EPSG:3003 in input results in 3003 in output).

My guess is that the issue is related to this one:
(GRASS does not write AUTHORITY parameter (the EPSG code) to GeoTIFFs, thus QGIS makes a guess where it takes the first matching CRS (the ID number of the assigned EPSG code is lower than the original), I presume...).
