I suspect therion hasn't yet been updated to include coordinate system
information when it exports a .3d file.

It should be fairly easy to update - just call img_open_write_cs()
instead of img_open_write() and pass in the PROJ4 projection string for
the output coordinate system as an extra parameter.

You can see if you use the "dump3d" tool - it'll include a "CS" line in
the header section if the coordinate system is specified, e.g.:

CS +proj=utm +ellps=WGS84 +datum=WGS84 +units=m +zone=33 +no_defs

Or look for a string starting "+proj" near the start of the file itself.

But if aven says there's no coordinate system specified, it's just
checked that for you.
