I have a shapefile with Geographic Coordinate System is "GCS_Everest Definition 1962" and the Projected Coordinate System is "Lambert_Conformal_Conic". I want to add this shapefile in Geoserver. But I don't know which code is used as the SRS for this Projection System. I don't know what to put in "Declared SRS" field. Here is the WKT

PROJCS["Lambert Conformal Conic",   
GEOGCS["GCS_Everest Definition 1962",     
DATUM["Everest Definition 1962",       
SPHEROID["Everest Definition 1962", 
6377301.243, 300.8017255654936]],    
 PRIMEM["Greenwich", 0.0],     
UNIT["degree", 0.017453292519943295],     
AXIS["Longitude", EAST],     
AXIS["Latitude", NORTH]],   
PARAMETER["central_meridian", 68.0],   
PARAMETER["latitude_of_origin", 32.5],   
PARAMETER["standard_parallel_1", 35.31445944444445],   
PARAMETER["false_easting", 2743196.4],   
PARAMETER["false_northing", 914398.8],   
PARAMETER["scale_factor", 1.0],   
PARAMETER["standard_parallel_2", 29.655283888888892],   
UNIT["m", 1.0],   
AXIS["x", EAST],   

You can always paste (or upload) your .prj file in to http://prj2epsg.org/search and see if it can work it out for you.

  • It gives following error either i add the .prj file or put the wkt in the editbox "Recursive call while creating a 'DefaultFactory' object." Do you know anything about it? – muzaffar Nov 19 '12 at 4:28
  • can you add the WKT to the question? – Ian Turton Nov 19 '12 at 9:35
  • Please check it out. – muzaffar Nov 20 '12 at 8:30
  • did you check it? – muzaffar Nov 27 '12 at 5:53
  • it works for me – Ian Turton Nov 27 '12 at 8:27

This might be the correct EPSG Code (4044): http://spatialreference.org/ref/epsg/4044/

Confirm the parmeters based on the WKT definition : http://spatialreference.org/ref/epsg/4044/prettywkt/

  • Thats only the datum. You have to add the parameters for lcc projection to get it working. – AndreJ Dec 4 '12 at 10:52
