WMS version 1.3 (axis order) Example

axis order, wms 1.3, light

Shows an example of the influence of axis order on WMS 1.3 GetMap requests.

WMS version 1.3 introduced the axis order sequence, so that for e.g. EPSG:4326 the bbox coordinate values need to be flipped (LatLon instead of LonLat). The first map uses the incorrect (WMS 1.1) axis order against a WMS 1.3 service, resulting in corrupted maps. The second map shows how to correctly request a map in EPSG:4326 against a WMS 1.3 service.
