Hi Helena, hi all,
maybe it's a bug... (but where?). I made some further tests with my
dataset by analysing a point:
The west corner of the "norderney" island (one of those islands in the
picture I have sent the URL) has following points in the map (d.where):
377261 5953152 (GSHHS dataset from v.in.gshhs [new, to be submitted soon])
377946 5953426 (GLOBE DEM 1km, generally matching to GSHHS quite well)
379592 5952535 (Students vector data from ARC/INFO)
I took a 1:100000 map of that area and got the coordinates in Gauss-Krüger
system (tmerc, bessel):
2575400 5953800 GK
These I transformed with m.proj to UTM to compare them with d.where results:
377375 5953157 UTM
It seems that the ARC/INFO vector data are shifted:
> 2km to east
> 500m to south
Then I looked back into the original lat/long database:
The shifts are identical. So it's not a *.proj problem.
May there be a bug in m.in.e00 which I used for data import?
