In OpenLayers, I'm trying to display a WMS overlay (EPSG:4269) from a server I don't have control over to a spherical mercator projection.

Is there an equivalent to this: http://blog.sumbera.com/2010/02/17/overlay-wms-on-google-in-openlayers/

for projections other than EPSG:4326 to EPSG:3857?



I think you will have a hard time doing such a reprojection directly in a web-client (i.e., a web browser). You should check out MapProxy which does allow one to accomplish things like this - even for WMS that you don't necessarily manage.

  • Thanks for the link -- that would be very helpful, but I don't have the permissions or "clearance" to add any software to our web server. I was trying to see if there is another way to do it.

  • Can you set up any type (.NET, Java, PHP, Python...etc) of web service in your environment?

  • No, anything sysadmin'esque is forbidden.
