SYNOPSIS

Usage: gdalsrsinfo [options] srs_def
srs_def may be the filename of a dataset supported by GDAL/OGR from which to extract SRS information OR any of the usual GDAL/OGR forms (complete WKT, PROJ.4, EPSG:n or a file containing the SRS)
Options: [--help-general] [-h] Show help and exit [-p] Pretty-print where applicable (e.g. WKT) [-V] Validate SRS [-o out_type] Output type { default, all, wkt_all, proj4, wkt, wkt_simple, wkt_noct, wkt_esri, mapinfo, xml }.fi

DESCRIPTION

The gdalsrsinfo utility reports information about a given SRS from one of the following:
The filename of a dataset supported by GDAL/OGR which contains SRS information
Any of the usual GDAL/OGR forms (complete WKT, PROJ.4, EPSG:n or a file containing the SRS)
Output types:
default proj4 and wkt (default option)
all all options available
wkt_all all wkt options available
proj4 PROJ.4 string
wkt OGC WKT format (full)
wkt_simple OGC WKT (simplified)
wkt_noct OGC WKT (without OGC CT params)
wkt_esri ESRI WKT format
mapinfo Mapinfo style CoordSys format
xml XML format (GML based)
