I have a very basic problem, and please bear with me since I'm new to GIS.
I have geoserver installed in a Ubuntu Box and installed a few maps in shapefile. The maps were originally in ArcGIS format .mdb, but I converted them to .shp file using ogr2ogr in Windows.
The maps, as known from the .prj file is using LCC projection. and geoserver correctly identifies them in
native srs as
lcc. But it mandates me to use
Declared SRS, which again forces me to use the same SRS via OpenLayers.
Isn't it the duty of WMS Server to convert projections. Shouldn't I be allowed for asking geoserver to give me map tiles in say
Please give me an insight..
