gdalmove - gdalmove.py Transform georeferencing of raster file in place
gdalmove.py [-s_srs <srs_defn>] -t_srs <srs_defn>
[-et <max_pixel_err>] target_file
The gdalmove.py script transforms the bounds of a raster file from one coordinate system
to another, and then updates the coordinate system and geotransform of the file. This is
done without altering pixel values at all. It is loosely similar to using gdalwarp to
transform an image but avoiding the resampling step in order to avoid image damage. It is
generally only suitable for transformations that are effectively linear in the area of the
If no error threshold value (-et) is provided then the file is not actually updated, but
the errors that would be incurred are reported. If -et is provided then the file is only

Currently the transformed geotransform is computed based on the transformation of the top
left, top right, and bottom left corners. A reduced overall error could be produced using
a least squares fit of at least all four corner points.
Override the coordinate system of the file with the indicated coordinate system
