Bug report #8326

MSSQL Import doesn't set SRID recognizable to ArcGIS

This issue only affects a table imported through a QGIS SQL Server connection that is consumed in ArcMap v10.x

The issue is that ArcGIS doesn't understand the spatial reference of the table imported through QGIS, though the SRID is recognized just fine in QGIS.

The error in ArcMap is: "Unknown Spatial Reference - the following data sources you added are missing spatial reference information. This data can be drawn in ArcMap, but cannot be projected".

QGIS is a valuable editing tool for our workflow, but we need to support ArcGIS users.

If this bug was addressed, it would be the superior data loading tool for SQL Server 2012.

Note this loading data is done by 'drag and drop' into the MSSQL Database.

#2 Updated by Matthew Baker almost 11 years ago

Just noticed that this is also an issue in QGIS - when they layer is dragged to the map canvas, QGIS will ask for the SRID.

#3 Updated by Nathan Woodrow almost 11 years ago

Do you have a spatial_ref_sys table in your database. The MS SQL provider will look in there for projections.
