I know that OSM WMS service works with EPSG:4326 and EPSG:900913
I need to have an OSM base layer projected in another Projection, for example EPSG:32632
Do you know some way to do this?
Even Reproject WMS service, or download new tiles for Geoserver.

  • While it is possible to cascade the services using Geoserver, you would be consuming a lot of resources. It's better to download the OSM data for your region, and host the services in your projection, yourself. Oct 24 '13 at 14:29
  • You can use gdalwarp (gdal.org/gdalwarp.html) to reproject to your SRS

@Devdatta Tengshe gave the answer that works. Cascade the WMS service through another WMS that can do re-projection on-the-fly. It can be for example Geoserver, Mapserver or Mapproxy.


If you work with ArcGIS 10.x you can use 'Basemap' option: File > Add Data > Add Basemap > OSM. Than you right-click on Layers > Properties > Coordinate System and change to yours.

Hope it will help.

  • Thanks Michal,<br> but I need to use it in OpenLayers and so Native Projection of WMS needs to be in EPSG:32632
