Bug report #475

square raster's pixels not square on display = rasters of different res are displaced

Added by Redmine Admin over 13 years ago. Updated about 11 years ago.

Status:Closed
Priority:Low
Assignee:nobody -
Category:Rasters
Affected QGIS version: Regression?:No
Operating System:Debian Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied: Resolution:fixed
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data: Copied to github as #:10534

Description

1. add a a raster with square pixels

2. change QGIS window's proportion to be taller-than-wide, or vice versa

3. zoom in

4. see how the pixels are not displayed square (too_wide.png, too_narrow.png)

5. now display one raster of 5m and one of 10m resolution

6. see how they are misplaced against each other; set some transparance to see this clearly (misplaced.png)

BTW, these are GRASS rasters I used for examples here, created with r.mapcalc. In QGIS the r.mapcalc output is displayed B&W, while in GRASS (see GRASS_mon.png) it is color with "rainbow" pallete. Note that after I run 'r.colors rules=rainbow' for the raster displayed B&W in QGIS and color in GRASS, it is displayed color in both from then on... weird. Ideas where is the bug (GRASS, GDAL, QGIS, gdal-grass)?

Does the problem correct itself after the next pan / zoom?

#2 Updated by Gary Sherman over 13 years ago

I can't duplicate the problem described in steps 1-4, using either a TIFF or GRASS raster.

GDAL 1.3.2, GRASS 6.2.0

And I can reproduce it with any raster. Why you can't I don't know.

Pan to the edge of your raster, maybe then you'll see it better. If you still can't see it, measure the pixel dimensions; one axis will be longer (while both should be equal).

GDAL 1.3.2

Same here.

GRASS 6.2.0

I don't think this matters. The bug is in displaying all rasters.

I don't need to measure the pixels. I can see that they are still square and I did try it from various locations in the raster.

#6 Updated by Redmine Admin over 13 years ago

Well then can you display 2 rasters with identical cells allignment, but of different resolution, set the transparency, and reproduce steps 5, 6?

I don't have any suitable test data....

Attached are 2 such rasters. One is 5m, the other is 10m. Both have exactly the same extent. Open them in QGIS and set transparency for both. Zoom and pan around a bit. Let me know if you can see how missalligned they are against each other. I can. The missalignment is different depending on zoom level and view center point location. It dissapears after zooming to either rasters full extent.

This problem can be seen in another way that doesn't require two images.

- load the 5res.tif image
- click on the zoom in tool to get a cross-hair cursor
- place the cursor over the bottom right corner of the image and note down the x/y coordinates (should be 481510, 4180530)
- pan the image so that the bottom right corner of the image is in the middle of the map
- click on the zoom in tool to get a cross-hair cursor again
- place the cursor over the same corner and note the x/y coords. They are different. This is the underlying cause of the mis-matched images.

The x/y coordinate of that corner varies with panning and zooming of the image.

Further note: this problem only occurs when the image is panned so that some of the image is off the visible map.

#11 Updated by Gavin Macaulay - over 13 years ago

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

Fixed in 0.8 branch () and head ().
