Just a typical computer user that gets to bang on the keyboard most of the day. Primarily data collection in a CAD environment. Since I like to poke around and read up on things that interest me I end up getting most of the support calls in the friends and family circle. Windows at work, Ubuntu at home (main accomplishment has been switching wife and several kids to full time open source use), Python for fun and work with it embedded in our CAD system.

comment How do I retrieve an arc ascii grid file from NED 1/3 second data using python and OWSLib
Ok that definitely got me looking in a whole new direction, I'm currently short on testing time but hope some of it is productive.

Fantastic, just specifying a_srs "EPSG:3729" fixed it, though it still has one inconsistency in a Keyword that is being set to unknown. But that will be another question as it is the only thing stopping GlobalMapper from error free import and is easily fixed with geotifcp.

The number is correct for US Survey feet, but yes the real problem is why did it think it was in meters. Which I still am not sure of though DavidF at least nailed a solution.
