gis: ogrinspect: AttributeError when the spatial reference system is undefined in the data source

Calling ogrinspect() without an explicit srid and with a data source that does not have a spatial reference system defined causes an AttributeError exception.

If the srid is explicitly given, no error occurs. However, since the code gives srid_str a value if srid is None, I'm assuming that an AttributeError should be caught and the srid_str given the same value as if srid were None.

I think this is may be similar to a previous issue I asked about on the django-user mailing list:

which jbronn fixed in [6916].

The following IPython session, which is also pasted at, is using the shapefile from Note that [2] works with an explicit srid, while [3] fails:

In [1]: from django.contrib.gis.utils.ogrinspect import *

In [2]: print ogrinspect('st99_d00.shp', 'State', srid='-1')
# This is an auto-generated Django model module created by ogrinspect.
from django.contrib.gis.db import models

class State(models.Model):
    area = models.DecimalField(max_digits=20, decimal_places=5)
    perimeter = models.DecimalField(max_digits=20, decimal_places=5)
    st99_d00_field = models.IntegerField()
    st99_d00_i = models.IntegerField()
    state = models.CharField(max_length=2)
    name = models.CharField(max_length=90)
    lsad = models.CharField(max_length=2)
    region = models.CharField(max_length=1)
    division = models.CharField(max_length=1)
    lsad_trans = models.CharField(max_length=50)
    geom = models.PolygonField(srid=-1)
    objects = models.GeoManager()

In [3]: ogrinspect('st99_d00.shp', 'State')
