GDAL 3.1.0 is released

Jorge Sanz (OSGeo)

Hi,

 

On behalf of the GDAL/OGR development team and community, I am pleased to announce the release of GDAL/OGR 3.1.0. GDAL/OGR is a C++ geospatial data access library for raster and vector file formats, databases and web services. It includes bindings for several languages, and a variety of command line tools.

 

http://www.gdal.org/

 

The 3.1.0 release is a new feature release with the following highlights:

 

* Implement [RFC 75]

(https://gdal.org/development/rfc/rfc75_multidimensional_arrays.html):

support for multidimensional arrays in MEM, VRT, netCDF, HDF4, HDF5 and GRIB drivers. Read/write for MEM and netCDF. Read/only for others. Add gdalmdiminfo and gdalmdimtranslate utilities.

* Implement [RFC 76]

(https://gdal.org/development/rfc/rfc76_ogrpythondrivers.html):

add capability of writing vector drivers in Python

* New GDAL drivers:

- [COG](https://gdal.org/drivers/raster/cog.html): write-only, for Cloud Optimized GeoTIFF

- [EXR](https://gdal.org/drivers/raster/exr.html): read/write driver, relying on OpenEXR library

- [ISG](https://gdal.org/drivers/raster/isg.html): read-only, for geoid models of the International Service for the Geoid

- [RDB](https://gdal.org/drivers/raster/rdb.html): read-only, for RIEGL Database .mpx RDB 2 files (#1538) (needs proprietary SDK)

* New OGR drivers:

- [FlatGeoBuf](https://gdal.org/drivers/vector/flatgeobuf.html): read-support and creation (#1742)

- [MapML](https://gdal.org/drivers/vector/mapml.html): read/write driver for experimental web spec

* Improved drivers:

- OAPIF driver (renamed from WFS3): updated to OGC API - Features 1.0 core spec

- GTiff: improve performance of internal overview creation

- GTiff: GeoTIFF 1.1 support

- Shapefile driver: add read/creation/update support for .shz and .shp.zip

- netCDF vector: read/write support for CF-1.8 Encoded Geometries (#1287)

- VICAR: multiple improvements and write support (#1855)

- DDS: add read support

* Other improvements:

- gdalwarp: accept output drivers with only CreateCopy() capabilities

- [gdal_viewshed](https://gdal.org/programs/gdal_viewshed.html):

new utility for viewshed algorithm

* Remove GFT driver now that the online service no longer exists (#2050)

* New Sphinx-based documentation

* Multiple security related fixes (ossfuzz)

* Continued code linting (cppcheck, CoverityScan, etc.)
