Feature request #17219
Better description of bands
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||fixed/implemented|
|Easy fix?:||No||Copied to github as #:||25118|
Some multiband fornmat (I have checked especialli GRIB) have a description in the metadata for the meaning of each band (e.g. wind speed 10 m above ground). In the layer properties > Style, only the band numbers are listed (band 1 etc.).
This makes styling very difficult. It would seem reasonable to add the metadata to the band number, e.g.:
Band 1 (wind speed 10 m above ground)

Misinterpretation of EPSG code confirmed with other GRIBs from other sources.
here on 2.18.* and gdal 2.2.2:
both gdal (and qgis) read a custom CRS (+proj=longlat +a=6367470 +b=6367470 +no_defs) but this definitely seems to reproject to the right place, see attached image.

Confirmed, thanks for checking. As mentioned in mailing list, GRIBS dowloaded and correctly visualized in ZyGrib are not projected correctly, see http://www.faunalia.eu/~paolo/grib2.bz2
This is outside the scope of the current ticket however.
gdalinfo reports messages like
Band 1206 Block=109x1 Type=Float64, ColorInterp=Undefined
Description = 0[-] SFC (Ground or water surface)
Un-handled possible ensemble section center 58 subcenter 0
Warning 1: Band 1206 of GRIB dataset is 130x99, while the first band and dataset is 109x89. Georeferencing of band 1206 may be incorrect, and data access may be incomplete.
GRIB_REF_TIME= 1515456000 sec UTC
GRIB_VALID_TIME= 1515801600 sec UTC
so I would say it is GDAL or zygrib problem.

We are mixing up things here, my fault.
1. the projection issue: unclear whether this is due to QGIS misinterpreting EPSG:4326 or Zygrib/GDAL providing invalid projection; I will do more research
2. wrong extent: brilliantly clarified by Giovanni, thanks
3. description of bands: remains valid, it' a QGIS GUI issue, possibly not too difficult.
Thanks all for feedback.

Projection issue seems due to Zygrib, in any case not to QGIS:

It works fine in QGIS master when loading the layer as mesh:
