Does anybody know is CRS:84 in WMS v.1.3.0 getCapabalities response is same projection as WGS84 (EPSG:2180)(EPSG:4326)?

And is [westBoundLongitude],[eastBoundLongitude],[southBoundLatitude],[northBoundLatitude] in EX_GeographicBoundingBox respectively equivalent with [minx],[miny],[maxx],[maxy] in earlier version of WMS response (1.1.1)?

    [eastBoundLongitude] should be equivalent to [maxx], and [southBoundLatitude] to [miny], so take care for the order of the four bounds.

  • Is it supposed to be getCapabilities instead of getCapabalities?

Actually it's equivalent to EPSG:4326 but changing the axis from Lat-Long to Long-Lat. The standard EPSG:4326 is Lat-Long


In regards to your first question, EPSG:2180 is a Polish projection based on Transverse Mercator. CRS:84 is equivalent to EPSG:4326 - ie, basic WGS84 degrees.


  • yeah, I meant equivalent to WGS84 thanks for link! I was looking everywhere but I wasn't sure about that.
