I've a GeoTIFF image in ESPG:4326 (WGS84) and when I try with gdalwarp to reproject to UTM, it has problem

gdalwarp -s_srs "EPSG:4326" -t_srs '+proj=utm +zone=33 +datum=WGS84 +units=m +no_defs' -of GTIFF test.tif test1.tif

ERROR 1: Too many points (441 out of 441) failed to transform, unable to compute output bounds.

Here is the information of this TIFF file

    I see the problem is due to I try to reproject this image outside of its UTM zone then gdalwarp cannot do this. – Pham Huu Bang May 11 '16 at 6:09

Try with other zone it has no problem, I guess GDAL cannot wrap it outside.

gdalwarp -t_srs '+proj=utm +zone=12 +datum=WGS84 +units=m +no_defs' test.tif test_utm1.tif

    It can reproject to neighbouring UTM zones, but not 100° of longitude away, If you need a wide spanning projection, you have to switch from transverse mertacor to a Lambert or Albers projection. – AndreJ May 11 '16 at 9:41
