When rasterizing a vector, an existing raster is silently overwritten. This is not safe.


#1 Updated by Giuseppe Sucameli over 13 years ago

When you select the output file (by click on the Select button) the tool ask for confirmation if you select an existent file.

When should it ask for?

#2 Updated by Paolo Cavallini over 13 years ago

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

It does not ask, at least not in my case (GDAL 1.7). However, this is solved in GDAL 1.8, so I think we can close this.
