Not sure if this should go to proj list, but I would like to transform 
about 14 jpg orthos (already in a vrt)
from Clarke 1880 Cape Datum, Lo33 to WGS84 Hartebeeshoek94 datum UTM 43S

The jpw file has:
so you'll probably notice that it is not the usual Gauss Conformal 
projection, as that would be +ve South and West for this area.

I'm having a bit of trouble finding the correct s_srs and t_srs values 
for gdalwarp.
I'm presuming that by inputting a vrt to gdalwarp, I will get 1 nice big 
ortho (instead of the 14 jpeg in the vrt), and I can then cut that up 
into 1Km squares on the new projection.

Once the orthos are done I will be needing to transform (as above) a 3D 
DGN file (yep, I'll re-write it as v7) and an ASCII DEM file as well. 
Typical DEM values are:

I'd be grateful for some help specifying the input and output CRS's

Thanks & regards,
