Hi, I was jumping with joy this morning when I saw the announcement that the new version 188.8.131.52 dealt with a couple of updates related to OGC WMServers:
A new update for Manifold is now available.
Changes since previous update:
(Fix)The Manifold OGC WMS server no longer reports wrong coordinate boxes for systems other than lat/lon
(Fix) Linking data from an OGC WMS server correctly handles relative service URLs in the capabilities document.
My issue up to now is not being able to choose the coordinate system when linking to images from a wms server. The images always come back in lats & long. I was hoping with this release it's been fixed.
But alas, even with this update, I'm still unable to retrieve an image in a projection other than lats and long. A common projection in BC is (what else?) BC Albers (EPSG 3005) and it's available from the provincial WMServers. I can use QGis and retrieve images in BC Albers or UTM. But in Manifold, there is still no way to select from among the available coordinate systems when connecting to a WMServer.
Are other people able to link to OGC WMServers and select a projection from the ones offered by the server?
Here is the URL for hillshades from a government of British Columbia WMS server if anyone wants to test:
Here's the page with all the WMS URLs
