I have a raster with the projection:

+proj=longlat +datum=WGS84 +ellps=WGS84 +towgs84=0,0,0 

I'm trying to insert a raster file into the postgis with a SRID 4326, but I don't know if it is right.

raster2pgsql -s <srid> -I -C -M <pathRaster> -F  -f rast public.rasterTable

How can I figure out the right SRID to every projection?


If you look it up at http://spatialreference.org, SR-ORG:7917 is suggested as an exact match and you also get an INSERT line to add it to the lookup table.

It won't say if there a relevant difference for your data, so you'll have to do some digging yourself. The change from 4326 is the +towgs parameter versus the +no_defs one.
