GRASS and Cygwin
- How do I find the Cygwin packages to install? - Cygwin Packages
- Can't find pq.dll: Make sure you installed the PostgreSQL package in the Cygwin [installer].
- Can't find pq.dll : try copy cygpq.dll to pq.dll
- In a Latitude-Longitude location I'm getting the error Illegal latitude for North when importing an unprojected raster image: Unprojected images are given a resolution of 1 pixel per line, and so any image with a height of more than 90 pixels will try and write data to an impossible latitude.
Solution: import the image into a simple XY location and georeference the image with either r.region (if bounds are simple and known) or i.points and i.rectify. An automated alternative to r.region is to create a "World File" to be used by r.in.gdal. See the GeoTIFF format help page at [].
