DESCRIPTION

g.proj.identify allows to automaticaly identify the EPSG code from a given Well-Know Text (WKT) projection string stored in a file. The user can also print the EPSG code of the current location. The conversion from a given EPSG code to WKT and proj4 is supported.

EXAMPLE

# print EPSG code of current Location - use without parameters
g.proj.identify

# identify EPSG code from WKT definition stored in file 'myproj.wkt'
g.proj.identify wkt=myproj.wkt

# print WKT and proj4 for given EPSG code, independent from current location
g.proj.identify -p -w epsg=4326
