I have a SRTEXT like this: GEOGCS["My Data",DATUM["Not specified (.....

I want to get PROJ4TEXT of this STREXT.

Can I get it from QGIS. Because I want to insert it in Postgresql SPATIAL_REF_SYS table. (or I need PROJ4TEXT data to use this projection)


You can write the text (which is called WKT) into a text file mycrs.prj , and run gdalsrsinfo on that. Running in the OSGE4W (or Linux/MAC) shell

gdalsrsinfo mycrs.prj >out.txt

should report the proj4 string and the WKT definition for postgis.

  • should I install any program to linux. gdalsrsinfo command did not work. – barteloma Jun 10 '14 at 10:51
  • The gdal package from ubuntugis should be installed. this is not yet available for trusty, but for all earlier OS versions. – AndreJ Jun 10 '14 at 12:25
