Bug report #18345
WFS 1.1.0 broken by inverted axis in QGIS Server
|Affected QGIS version:||3.0.0||Regression?:||Yes|
|Operating System:||Easy fix?:||No|
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||no timely feedback|
|Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:||No||Copied to github as #:||26235|
Apparently QGIS Server supports WFS 1.1.0 as advertised by its getcapabilities, but when requested to getcapabilities for VERSION=1.1.0 it does no return anything different from the default (which is 1.0).
The result is that QGIS WFS client gets confused and you get inverted axis.
Specifying WFS version 1.1 in the client, does not help while setting it to 1.0 does.
Note that the default setting for WFS is AUTO which also fails.

To be more precise: the returned XML is different, what does not change is the SRS specification: according to the specs, it should be urn:x-ogc:def:crs:EPSG:xxxx instead of EPSG: , a WFS 1.1 server returning EPSG:xxxx is not really expected, and a source of confusion
This confuses the client and it is probably a violation of the specifications (not 100% sure about that).

Another evidence: getFeature call always return 1.1 format but coordinates are not inverted and epsg code is not URN prefixed.
I believe this is the real problem: when using WFS 1.1 the coordinates should be lat/lon and the srsName should be prefixed with urn:ogc:def:crs:
GeoServer fully respect this and Mapserver does it partially: see http://mapserver.org/ogc/wfs_server.html#axis-orientation-in-wfs-1-1-and-2-0

- Subject changed from WFS 1.1.0 broken in QGIS Server to WFS 1.1.0 broken by inverted axis in QGIS Server
Things looks more complicated than it seems,
This email exchange is enlightning:
the bottomline is that we should probably change WFS 1.1.0 getfeature response to:
- use urn: prefixed srsName
- return lat/lon instead of lon/lat in GML
