A world file can be created from a string, or read from a file with
use world_image_file::WorldFile; let contents = "32.0\n0.0\n0.0\n-32.0\n691200.0\n4576000.0\n"; let w = WorldFile::from_string(&contents).unwrap();
Coordinates can be converted from image pixel to 'world' coordinates, and vice-versa.
assert_eq!(w.image_to_world((171., 343.)), (696672., 4565024.)); assert_eq!(w.world_to_image((696672., 4565024.)), (171., 343.));
Pixel coordinates can be fractional.
(10.0, 2.0) refers to the top left of pixel (10, 2).
(10.5, 2.5) is in the middle of pixel (10, 2).
World Files do not store any SRID/spatial reference system (SRS)/coordinate reference system (CRS) data. World Files were originally defined by ESRI.
Result<WorldFile, ()> is returned (i.e. all errors are flatted to
()), but this
may change to be more descriptive, and would not be seen as a breaking change.
