Bug report #5071

A defined custom CRS is not applied when loading a shp

Added by craigleat - over 12 years ago. Updated over 10 years ago.

Category:Projection Support
Affected QGIS version:1.7.4 Regression?:No
Operating System:windows Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:invalid
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:14838


With 1.7.4 on windows try the following:
1. Start a new project, enable OTF and set the project to wgs84
2. Check my crs database contains the definition for my custom crs
3. Add a shp using my custom crs (layer contains a valid prj file)
4. Goto layer properties and I see "EPSG:31282 - MGI (Ferro) / Austria Central Zone" has been applied. ???
5. Select the custom crs and the layer displays correctly i.e there is nothing wrong with the crs definition!

This only affects a custom crs. Layers with a standard crs work fine.

Do the same with a current master version and all is well.

Can the fix be back ported please...?

Hm. This seems to be similar to #5066 - seems that QGIS CRS detection algorithm is failing in 1.7. It would be better to fail completely to detect CRS (and ask user!) than use a wrong one...

  • Target version changed from 35 to Version 1.8.0

#3 Updated by Paolo Cavallini over 11 years ago

  • Target version changed from Version 1.8.0 to Version 2.0.0

#4 Updated by Giovanni Manghi over 10 years ago

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

if the issue was already fixed in master when the ticket was filed then I assume it should be ok also in qgis 2.0. In general there are no backports, but starting from now on there should be more frequent releases.
