AW: [Mapbender-users] Projection_Brandenburg_DB_MB_spatial_ref_sys

Hello Michael,

I want to introduce the EPSG 325833 because my data have x-coordinate + 3000000m.
I want to serve our data with UMN (still localhost) and want to overlay in Mapbender i.e. with layer germany.
Maybe I should modify \proj\nad\epsg in Mapserver?

Best regards,

Hello Robert,

mapbender doesn't necessarily need to reside in a postgis enabled db, so if the table "spatial_ref_sys" is missing, it means you did not load the postgis extension into that database. I think at the moment, mapbender only uses the geo functionality for measuring. At least there is no reprojecting of services if they are not projected correctly. So adding the spatial_ref_sys to the mapbender db won't help.

Which SRS are you using for the service? Correctly it should be 25832 or 33, but the offset indicates you should use the Brandenburg specific SRS 325832 or 33. Are you trying to load a remote service or is this your own data served as wms eg. from mapserver?

Cheers, Michael
