Bug report #16232

Update SRS DB with latest data from GDAL

Added by Spencer Gardner almost 7 years ago. Updated over 6 years ago.

Affected QGIS version:2.18.3 Regression?:No
Operating System:Linux Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:worksforme
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:24142


My Linux builds of QGIS 2.18 are missing a number of map projections that appear in GDAL. As best I can tell, this is a result of an outdated SRS database. I am not having the same problem in my Windows installation but I suspect that must be a result of the OSGEO4W packaging, which must be providing an updated database.

Two examples that I'm aware of:
  1. EPSG 6420 (California region III)
  2. EPSG 7599 (WISCRS Dane County)

  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

crssync should be run on install to sync the srs.db with the installed GDAL.

Is this an additional installation step when building from source? If so, it should be documented. Isn't it odd to expect a user to manually run crssync when it could be called by the build script?
