I'm currently working with Natural England layers provided on data.gov. The WMS layers display where they should for EPSG:27700, but the added WFS layers do not. When zoomed out to show the extent, they appear to be rotated and in the wrong place. How do I fix this error?



I have tried using other EPSG and have also tried to load into Golden Software's Surfer and have found that the same happens there.

    Which CRS did you use when loading the WFS? Which CRS does it support? Which CRS did you try? – Erik Jun 8 at 12:23
  • which version of WFS did you use? – Ian Turton Jun 8 at 13:11

Found the answer for anyone who needs it. You need to modify the connection and select the invert axis orientation at the bottom. Then you need to restart QGIS. I had tried all but reloading, and it hadn't worked then.

    While this is a work around you should report that the server is returning the data with the incorrect axis order (EPSG:27700 is well defined as E-N and it is returning N-E, which is easy to check as they include easting and northing in the atributes) – Ian Turton Jun 8 at 13:33
