Projects / GDAL


The Geospatial Data Abstraction Library (GDAL) is a unifying C/C++ API for accessing raster geospatial data, and currently includes formats like GeoTIFF, Erdas Imagine, Arc/Info Binary, CEOS, DTED, GXF, and SDTS. It is intended to provide efficient access, suitable for use in viewer applications, and also attempts to preserve coordinate systems and metadata. Python, C, and C++ interfaces are available.

        Release Notes: This is a bugfix release and adds no significant new features. This release replaces the GDAL/OGR 1.4.3 release, which was retracted because it included an unexpected ABI (Application Binary Interface) change from the earlier 1.4.x releases. This ABI change means that applications using the GDAL/OGR C++ interface, and GDAL/OGR driver plugins built against GDAL/OGR 1.4.0, 1.4.1, or 1.4.2 could not be safely used with GDAL/OGR 1.4.3.
