Introduction to GDAL

This tutorial will introduce you to the GDAL command line tools.

3. Reprojecting GIS data

In this chapter you will learn to:

  • Reproject raster data
  • Reproject vector data
You will use the gdalwarp and ogr2ogr commands.

In this exercise we want to make a map of the community of Delft with the main roads and the relief. Because the datasets are in different formats we have to reproject them to a common coordinate system. Here we reproject all datasets to the Dutch Amersfoort/RD New projection.
