Hello Scott,

I can't find EPSG code for area I building map (18F, 19F - Patagonia)
So I am doing this now in my script:

gdalwarp -of GTiff -srcnodata 32767 -t_srs "+proj=utm +zone=18F +datum=WGS84" -rcs -order 3 -tr 30 30 -multi ASTGTM2_${tile}_dem.tif ${tile}.tif

this goes fine, but when I am trying then convert to hgt having errors:

gdal_translate -of SRTMHGT ${tile}.tif ${tile}.hgt

Warning 1: The corner coordinates of the source are not properly aligned on plain latitude/longitude boundaries.
ERROR 1: Image dimensions should be 1201x1201 or 3601x3601.

Any suggestion?

Thank you
