I cannot get correct transformation from WGS84 to the Hungarian EOV EPSG:23700 (Hungarian Datum 72) using ogr2ogr.
I am using ogr2ogr from the fwtools shell. I have a shapefile in GCS WGS84 (epsg 4326) and I want to convert it to EOV, a projected coordinate system using the Hungarian Datum 1972. The contents of the prj file are:
When I run this command:
ogr2ogr -t_srs EPSG:23700 EOV_HD72.shp WGS84.shp
I get failure and the following error: Error 1:latitude or longitude exceeds limits. Failed to reproject feature 0 (geometry probably out of source or destination SRS).
Any suggestions on why this re-projection fails?
