Hi Jürgen,

Try this instead:

$ echo 4447802.078667 -1111950.519667 | cs2cs +proj=sinu +to +proj=latlong +datum=WGS84
40d34'27.915"E  10d3'18.399"S 0.000

WGS84 is not an operation<http://proj4.org/operations/index.html> in PROJ. It is however a recognised as a datum that can be used in
conjunction with an operation such as “latlong”.

Since what you are doing is really just converting projected sinusoidal coordinates to it’s originating
latitude and longitude you can also just do

$ echo 4447802.078667 -1111950.519667 | proj -I +proj=sinu
40d34'27.915"E 10d3'18.399”S

To reach the same result.

I'm trying to convert Modis meter values to WGS84 decimal degrees,
using the PROJ4 command line, but I'm not able to set the parameters

E.g. the command "echo 4447802.078667 -1111950.519667 | cs2cs
+proj=sinu +to +proj=WSG84" fails with "projection initialization
failurecause: Unknown error".

Does anybody know how the define the PROJ4 command line properly, in
order to achieve a conversion with parameters according the attached
TWCC screen shot?

Thanks in advance!
