I use Leaflet to show a WMS Layer via a proxy.php (for authentication). That is working on most WMS Layers. But I have some WMS Sources, which are having a small shift in the tiles. See Overlay Map in the example.

Shift between WMS Tiles in Leaflet

var map = L.map('mapid').setView([47.549904, 9.152927], 18);

var baseMaps = {
    "map1": map1

var overlayMaps = {
    "map4": map4

L.control.layers(baseMaps, overlayMaps).addTo(map);

  • what projection is your WMTS layer in? – Ian Turton Sep 21 at 15:07
  • I updated the question with code. So the Projection is standard from Leaflet. You can see the code in Action at: link – Marcel Sep 21 at 15:20

Standard projection for Leaflet is EPSG:3857. If you submit GetCapabilites request to you WMS server, you'll see that it supports only the following projections: EPSG:2056 and EPSG:21781.

This means two things:

  1. If you want to use this layer, you'll have to define on of those projections with proj4leaflet plugin and then use it for your layer and your map.
  2. Since Leaflet supports only one projection per map, you will not be able to combine this layer with OpenStreet layer, which has only EPSG:3857 projection.

  • Thank's, you helped me a lot! I could manage it using proj4leaflet – Marcel Sep 23 at 12:42
