The extents of the region need to be adjusted. Get the N,S,E,W bounds
of the vector points, add 75 m to N and E, substract 75 m from S and
W, use these with res=150, but without -a, to set the region. N - S
and E - W should be multiples of 150. The points should now fall into
the cell centers, granted that the vector points are really evenly
