I have the following field 51A.enter image description here It is described by the following GML excerpt:

    <ogr:av_export_temp.ihkulroo fid="av_export_temp.ihkulroo.183">
      <ogr:geometryProperty><gml:Polygon><gml:outerBoundaryIs><gml:LinearRing><gml:coordinates>-63613.5803279425,6594849.11111532 -63338.4982627596,6596691.79998076 -61065.5082310117,6596353.15340253 -58792.3850046138,6596015.89007513 -56519.1291541683,6595680.00990826 -54245.7412499302,6595345.51281189 -51972.2218618083,6595012.39869636 -52241.6978222727,6593169.17366796 -54516.3382854795,6593502.39409221 -56790.8473374676,6593836.99795894 -59065.2244085927,6594172.98535813 -61339.468928864,6594510.35638005 -63613.5803279425,6594849.11111532</gml:coordinates></gml:LinearRing></gml:outerBoundaryIs></gml:Polygon></ogr:geometryProperty>
      <ogr:Timereport1>2018/09/11</ogr: Timereport1 >

When I looked into GML file and QGIS CSR properties, it says that it uses EPSG:25832 ETRS89 / UTM zone 32N.

If I transform the first coordinate point (-63613.5803279425,6594849.11111532) and then display it on the Google map, it is somewhere in the North Sea, but it should be somewhere around (59.130778, 5.241507) (taken from Google Maps). What am I missing here?

    It looks like those points are expressed in UTM 33N, not UTM 32N. I would try assigning EPSG:25833 ETRS89 / UTM zone 33N, and see if it lines up properly.

  • can you include the part of the GML that expresses the srs?
