WMS Layer Scale Problem

Crashes QGIS or corrupts data: Copied to github as #:11207


When working with WMS layers, the scale is incorrect - thus, I can not use remote data with local data for an area.

When I load layers from PASDA, QGIS seems to think areas as large as Pennsylvania counties are less then 2 inches across. I have tried both available projections, WGS84 and NAD83.

For example: http://maps.pasda.psu.edu/wmsconnector/com.esri.wms.Esrimap?Servicename=AlleghenyCounty

I am using QGIS 0.10.0-6~hardy from the QGIS repo on Kubuntu 8.04

Furthermore, when adding the first layer on the list (Basins), I get:

Could not draw Pennsylvania because:
GetMap request is for a Layer not offered by the server, or GetFeatureInfo request is for a Layer not shown on the map.
The WMS vendor also reported:
Layer with ID 0 does not exist.

This is probably due to a bug in the QGIS program. Please report this error.

Thanks for filing this ticket. Unfortunately I can only accept packaging related tickets against milestone 0.11.0 as we are branching for release, so I'm going to mark this for milestone 1.0.0.

I cannot reprocude this problems. The layers from this WMS seem to work fine, also the scale seems reasonable (tested with WGS84 and NAD83).

What kind of tool did you use. The measuring tool? Seems to work fine for me. You could check, if the dialog project properties -> general -> map units shows decimal degree.

I'm closing this bug, as it is already 5 months old. Feel free to reopen if you still have this problem.
