proj4 epsg:3857 hack should be removed

Reported by: komzpa@… Owned by: jochen@…

Component: tirex Version:
Keywords: Cc: kay_D


The file /tirex/backend-mapnik/ around line 256 shouldn't have a special hardcode for epsg:3857 and should depend on the correct version of proj-data instead.

I've bumped into a number of "spherical mercatorto spherical mercator" raster reprojection issues because of this enforcement.

osm.xml stylesheet also uses a special string for spherical mercator, and that string is _a bit_ different. Just enough to fire mapnik's reprojection engine for each step; I'll open a separate issue for that too.

Hope we'll have just one spherical mercator proj4 string in all the software at some time in the future instead of at least five ones that we've got now, and may that be "+init=epsg:3857" :3

I tried it, as the proj is defined by default:

# grep 3857 /usr/share/proj/epsg <3857> +proj=merc +a=6378137 +b=6378137 +lat_ts=0.0 +lon_0=0.0 +x_0=0.0 +y_0=0 +k=1.0 +units=m +nadgrids=@null +wktext +no_defs <>

I removed the special handling in and changed the styles to be "+init=epsg:3857", and it works flawlessly.
