I do not understand what these different EPSG's mean, even though they are both under WGS84.

The way the latitude and longitude values displayed are different in both the cases when I try to change the projections from EPSG:4326 to EPSG:36232 using pyproj in Python.

Can you clarify if the units of latitude and longitude values differ?

    Did you think of EPSG 32632 WGS84 UTM zone 32N? That has meters as units, while EPSG:4326 works in degrees. – AndreJ May 13 '15 at 10:10

As AndreJ assumed, I'm believe you meant EPSG::32632, WGS 1984 / UTM Zone 32 North. It's a projected coordinate reference system and its unit of measure is the meter, not decimal degrees. If your lat/lon coordinates fall within that zone, the values should range between:

Easting: 200 km to 800 km  
Northing: 0 km to 10000 km

EPSG 36232 is not a valid EPSG code: http://epsg.io/?q=36232

Why not just use EPSG:4326 if you want WGS 84.


I'm not sure if 'EPSG:36232' exists, but if does it is most likely to produce incorrect outputs. I'd advice you to use 'ESPG:4326' and transform it to 'EPSG:3857'.

    There isn't any information in the question to determine whether EPSG::3857 is an appropriate CRS to use. – mkennedy May 13 '15 at 16:39
