In Slovak and Czech republic, we are mostly using S-JTSK East/North projection, which is not standardized by any official authority (EPSG, ...) We use ESRI code 102067 for that.

This projection was removed in 1.7.4 (was in 1.7.3 as EPSG:102067).
It seems, that it was done in 42e02d82c05b4da370be77ef71345ba62457cc66 as the result of #4652.

If we want to clean EPSG database, the solution could be to add this projection under some other authority (ESRI or OSGEO ..).
It is essential, because currently we are not able to load any WMS layer in that projection, which is issue affecting all CzechoSlovak users (QGIS is not able to correctly load WMS layer in unknown projection).

spatialreference.org is currently down. Here are projection parameters:

PROJ4: +proj=krovak +lat_0=49.5 +lon_0=24.83333333333333 +alpha=30.28813975277778 +k=0.9999 +x_0=0 +y_0=0 +ellps=bessel +units=m +no_defs

I can confirm the same problem with current GIT version.

#3 Updated by Tomas Vrana over 11 years ago

Basically the same situation as here #728
Except the insert string is a little different now:

insert into tbl_srs values ('26810','S-JTSK (Greenwich) / Krovak','krovak','bessel','+proj=krovak +lat_0=49.5 +lon_0=24.83333333333333 +alpha=30.28813972222222 +k=0.9999 +x_0=0 +y_0=0 +ellps=bessel +pm=greenwich +units=m +no_defs','102067','EPSG','102067','0','0');

I can confirm this for the version 1.7.4. It is a serious issue since it is not possible to force custom projections to WMS layer.

Jürgen, thanks a lot for Your interest to this ticket.

1. Would you please change 'description' field to more correct value 'S-JTSK East/North' [1].

2. Another issue is, that this projection actually does not exists in EPSG database - it is coming from ESRI [1]. Wouldn't it be better to add it under ESRI authority name ?
