Openlayers and Geoserver: OSM/Google Maps and WMS Overlay

I am writing a code using OpenLayers. In this code, I want to display different layers in different zoom levels. Up until here, everything works. my problem began when I tried to add Google Maps as baselayers. My layers' projection system is not consistent with Google layers, so they should be reprojected. I tried to use Proj4js.transform method but it didn't work. My layers are in EPSG:3006(Sweden) and Google layers are in EPSG:900913. The following code results in a projected layer shifted to right. It means that the re-projection did not work properly. Please let me know what is wrong with my code.

this code is buggy, since I tried to test every possible solution. So maybe it is necessary to remove some parts. for instance, remove the Zoom levels part which is not really my problem.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


You don't need to use Proj4js as OpenLayers will handle the re-projection for you. If you set the projection attribute of your layer to EPSG:3006, and set the map display projection to EPSG:900913 then it should all match up ok...fingers crossed.

This example might help.

  • I cleaned up my code and changed the projections as you suggested, but it does not work yet. the Google maps layer is not displayed anymore. – msc87 Jan 17 '13 at 17:57
