Thanks a lot Oscar. The "no_rot" parameter was very helpful for me.
I am using these parameters for me Dubai Palm projection now:
- · proj=omerc
- · lat_0=25.095311
- · lonc=55.137296
- · alpha=-49.5
- · k=1.000000
- · x_0=100000.000
- · y_0=100000.000
- · ellps=WGS84
- · units=m
- · no_rot
But now I am facing with another problem.
I have got a satellite image projected in DLTM with this tfw file
Now I have transformed the upper left corner to WGS84 and then to my Dubai
Palm Jumeirah (DPJ) coordinate system.
- DLTM: 474701.805 2782373.472
- WGS84: 55.082433 25.147108
- DPJ: 107933.554 100771.284
Then I have rotated the image though the middle point by 49.5° with GIMP and
created a new tfw file with the upper left corner in DPJ system. With these
two file I have created a web mapping sever with the rotated image.
The Problem is now when I take any point of the rotated image and transform
it back to WGS84 then it is completely wrong. I have transformed the bottom,
top, left and right point of the palm and it seams that the coordinates in
the still rotated in WGS84.
Do you have an idea what I did wrong?
Should I use the towgs84 parameter?
