I'm trying to overlay coastlines on an image using gdal_rasterize but
can't get it to do anything at all.
% gdal_rasterize gshhs_land.shp warped.tif
Usage: gdal_rasterize [-b band] [-i]
[-burn value] | [-a attribute_name] | [-3d]
[-l layername]* [-where expression] [-sql select_statement]
The files are ok:
% ogrinfo gshhs_land.shp
INFO: Open of `gshhs_land.shp' using driver `ESRI Shapefile' successful.
1: gshhs_land (Polygon)
% gdalinfo warped.tif
Size is 396, 396
Coordinate System is: PROJCS["OSGB 1936 / British National Grid", ...
Band 1 Block=396x10 Type=UInt16, ColorInterp=Gray
P.S. Unrelated to this problem there's also another problem:
% gdal_rasterize -l gshhs_land gshhs_land.shp warped.tif
To many of -3d, -burn and -a specified.
"To" should be "Too", but since I've not specified any of -3d,
-burn or -a then I'm not sure what it's complaining about...
