I want to draw a rectangle. The coordinates are somewhere in northern Germany. But the rectangle shows up in the Near East? What am I doing wrong?

       var epsg900913 = new OpenLayers.Projection('EPSG:900913');
       var epsg3035   = new OpenLayers.Projection('EPSG:3035');

       var p11 = new OpenLayers.Geometry.Point(4281000, 3502000).transform(epsg3035, epsg900913);
       var p12 = new OpenLayers.Geometry.Point(4595000, 3502000).transform(epsg3035, epsg900913);
       var p13 = new OpenLayers.Geometry.Point(4595000, 4002000).transform(epsg3035, epsg900913);
       var p14 = new OpenLayers.Geometry.Point(4281000, 4002000).transform(epsg3035, epsg900913);
       var p15 = new OpenLayers.Geometry.Point(4281000, 3502000).transform(epsg3035, epsg900913);

Alright, I found it out myself. The transformation of EPSG:3035 is not defined by Proj4js, which is used by OpenLayers.

But it is possible to implement it by yourself.

  1. Download proj4js.js
  2. Include proj4js-combined.js to the HTML
  3. Get EPSG code for proj4js: can be found at spatial reference
  4. Define it, in my case it looked like that:

    Proj4js.defs["EPSG:3035"] = "+proj=laea +lat_0=52 +lon_0=10 +x_0=4321000 +y_0=3210000 +ellps=GRS80 +units=m +no_defs";

  • In the current version the syntax has changed, you now have to write: proj4.defs("EPSG:3035", "+proj=laea +lat_0=52 +lon_0=10 +x_0=4321000 +y_0=3210000 +ellps=GRS80 +units=m +no_defs"); – nathanvda Dec 14 '14 at 21:40
