I am creating GeoTif images from a USFS geospatial referenced PDFs using gdal_translate. I turned off all of the layers that I did not want and it produces a GeoTif of just the center window of the PDF. The graticule layer seems to define this.
Using QGIS, I load the PDF as a vector layer (all layers are not listed which is another question). QGIS clearly draws features that extend beyond the graticule layer. This is the PDF.
Is there a way that gdal_translate can produce a GeoTif of this extra information that lies outside of the graticule layer?
