[Gdal-dev] gdalwarp error

Thank you very much, Frank. I met another problem when I use gdalwarp:

gdalwarp -t_srs '+proj=aea +lat_1=29.50 +lat_2=45.50 +lat_0=23.00 
+lon_0=-96.00 +x_0=0.000 +y_0=0.000 +ellps=GRS80 +units=m +datum=NAD83' 
abl.sid abl.img

I got the error message:

ERROR 1: Translating source or target SRS failed: '+proj=aea

I tried to use C API, I followed the gdalwarp API tutorial, the 
reprojection does not get the correct result either:

 OGRSpatialReference oSRS;

 oSRS.SetProjCS( "Albers Conical Equal Area" );
 oSRS.SetACEA( 29.5, 45.5, 23.0, -96.0, 0.0, 0.0);
 oSRS.SetWellKnownGeogCS( "NAD83" );
 oSRS.exportToWkt( &pszDstWKT );

Do you have any idea?

Huajun Zhang,

A projection can be attached to an image in the process of translating
it if the existing projection is wrong or if the input image lacks one

For instance,

gdal_translate -a_srs '+proj=utm +zone=11 +datum=WGS84' in.tif out.tif

Is this the sort of operation you had in mind?
