I am trying to import GeoTIFF file into spatially enabled PostgreSQL database. Using command:

 raster2pgsql -s 4326 -C -F -a path/to/geotiff/file public.table_name 
 | psql -d database_name -U postgres.

This commands is working absolutely fine in Windows (Postgres 9.1), but it is giving an error in linux (Redhat 7.2, Postgres 9.1/Postgres9.5). It gives the following error:

rt_raster_gdal_warp: could not create GDAL transformation object for output dataset creation context: SQL function "ST_transform" statement 1.

I have also tried setting PROJSO and PROJ_LIB environment variable with

export PROJSO=/path/to/ibproj.so

but it is still not working.


Well the same issue has been faced by us few time back. Basically the isssue is with version mismatch. It is advisable that u shd check with higher version of GDAL GREATER THAN 1.11.1 specificaly on LINUX (RHEL or CENTOS) flavor. Once ur done with the installation a reboot is mandatory. Do not forgot to set GDAL_DATA, PROJSO env variable.

  • Philip: I'm having the same issue and am wondering if you can expand on your fix a bit? Did you roll back your gdal and proj? – adegolyer May 6 '19 at 20:42
