Bug report #370

PostGIS digitizing: wrong placement (reprojection?)

Crashes QGIS or corrupts data: Copied to github as #:10429


Got a new problem (svn 6044):
- loading a wms layer (NASA, latlong-wgs84)
- loading a postgis layer (Gauss-boaga)
- enabling on-the-fly projection
- starting digitize (points)
The points are placed along Greenwich (long0), and also long is not correct.

Dear Paolo,

I tried this using a database with the swiss coordinate system. My experience was that qgis didn't recognize the projection of the table and treated it as WGS84. After this, I went to vector layer properties -> general -> Spatial Reference system and change it to swiss coordinate system to tell qgis explicitely the right coordinate system. Then, digitizing went fine, so it might be more a coordinate system recognition problem than a digitizing problem.

Could you try if it is the same for you with the Gauss-boaga postgis layer?

Oh, I just realised that I used the QGIS SRID instead of postgis SRID when I created the table. Now it works for me as it should.

If it still does not work for you, could you try if there is the same bug with a shapefile in Gauss-boaga projection? If so, could you send me this file for testing?

Got it -my mistake. If I try to reproject gaus-boaga points, this does not work for extreme east locations. Sorry.
A cubic world would be way better!
