[gdal-dev] RE: FW: Annotations from S-57 Files

While I wasn't able to find the OBJL=22001 and OBJL=22010 objects formally
defined anywhere, I was able to back out their meaning using SeeMyEnc and
some debugging in GDAL. Basically I found that 22001 is an "Annotation"
point and 22010 is a "Traffic Line".
I added the following 2 lines at the end of the gpapszS57Classes definition
in s57tables.h. I wasn't sure of the attributes to use, is this correct
(note that it seems to work fine)?
Likewise I added one new attribute (22076) which is an alternate name
(ALTNAM). There were several other unrecognized attributes, but they seemed
to carry some application-specific z-level detail. Perhaps these are custom
attributes? Anyway I added the following line to gpapszS57attributes for the
useful attribute carrying the names:
Are these changes ok? I don't use the CSV files directly, but I'm guessing
that perhaps the s57tables.h file is auto-generated from those or something,

I have inspected the file, and if I run ogrinfo on it with debug I see:
S57: Unable to find definition for OBJL=22001
S57: Unable to find definition for OBJL=22010
It appears it has two S-57 object classes that don't appear in the
specification (or at least the older specification I worked from).
I see there is a layer called "Generic" which seems to have these objects
but without extended object attributes like the text. I assume these
your annotation objects.
I would suggest you dig into the S-57/ENC specifications and look for
object catalogs and use them to extend gdal/data/s57objectclasses.csv to
include these new classes. If you can feed these back into GDAL as a ticket
and patch that would be fantastic.
