When I import the vector it simply does not show in the map. I tried with a raster and it worked fine. I tried now with both KML and GeoJSON and the same thing happen, I can see that it loaded in the Chrome Dev Tool and I can also see the data from there, but not in the map. I using the Vector Layer and the Image Vector Layer as a base.

The projection is EPSG:31982, UTM 22 S - Sirgas 2000

I'm using OpenLayers v5.3

I tried some things that I found in examples online, but none seems to work. Other questions related that did not helped me:

Sample code I'm using:

proj4.defs('EPSG:31982', '+proj=utm +zone=22 +south +ellps=GRS80 +units=m +no_defs');

var map = new Map({
  layers: [
    new TileLayer({
      source: new OSM()
    new VectorLayer({
      renderMode: 'image',
      source: new VectorSource({
        url: 'img/estradas.geojson',
        format: new GeoJSON(),
        projection: 'EPSG:31982'
      style: function(feature) {
        return style;
  target: 'map',
  view: new View({
    center: transform(getCenter(imageExtent), 'EPSG:31982', 'EPSG:3857'),
    zoom: 13

  • projection isn't a valid option for VectorSource. If you geojson contains EPSG:31982 coordinates you should replace format: new GeoJSON(), projection: 'EPSG:31982' with format: new GeoJSON({dataProjection: 'EPSG:31982'})

  • Worked! Thank you very much. I looked lots of examples and any of them presented this method. The only thing that become different is the vector color, but I think I can change this with the style attribute. If you want to write the answer I can mark as correct :) Jan 21, 2019 at 13:00

For vector layers the data projection should be specified in the format, not the source:

  source: new VectorSource({
    url: 'img/estradas.geojson',
    format: new GeoJSON({dataProjection: 'EPSG:31982'})
