Description

I configured a mapserver/wms server and I noticed that if in the mapfile a layer is specified as a postgis layer it doesn't appear in the layout when is added. At the beginning I supposed to be a problem in the mapfile, but then I made tests with two other clients (gvSIG and uDIG) and the layer appeared correctly.

I tested on Ubuntu 8.10 and 9.04 Qgis from 1.0.2 to 1.1 (from repository) and 1.2 (compiled from trunk today) and all presented the same behavior.

if you need to do tests you can use the following address

http://mapserver.uevora.pt/cgi-bin/ue_wms

in the available layers you'll see

"country" is a shapefile

"Cont_Freg_v2" is a shapefile

"topo_c" is postgis

"avif" is postgis

"ferrovias" is a shapefile

postgis layers are defined as the following

LAYER
      NAME  "avif" 
      METADATA
            "wms_title"   "Avifauna" 
            "wms_abstract"  "Zonas de Protecção Especial para a Avifauna" 
        END
PROJECTION
"init=epsg:20790" 
END
      TYPE           POLYGON
      STATUS         ON
      CONNECTION     "user=*** password=*** dbname=*** host=localhost port=5432" 
      CONNECTIONTYPE postgis
      DATA           "the_geom from avif" 
      DUMP           TRUE
      CLASS

                STYLE

                COLOR 70 123 20
                END
      END
   END

History

#1 Updated by Giovanni Manghi over 10 years ago

update:
if the project is defined in wgs84 and the layers are added consequently, they show up correctly.

#2 Updated by Marco Hugentobler over 10 years ago

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

This is a bug in the configuration of the WMS server. The lat/long bounding box is given as:

<LatLonBoundingBox minx="-177.127" miny="-8.21058e+17" maxx="171.967" maxy="2.93579e+13" />

Consequently, QGIS asks this extent if it is the first layer added to the project. The server then tells, that it cannot deliver this extent.
