different results with proj4js

Jan 6, 2010 at 9:31 AM

    hi,when i use proj4js to transform coords from epsg:4326 to epsg:900913(special mecator), i got different results with proj.net.for example, lonlat(45,45), in proj4js,  result is xy(5009377.085697311, 5621521.486192066), but in proj.net it is  xy(5009377.08569731 , 5591279.08717739).the proj4 string in proj4js is as follows:"+title= Google Mercator EPSG:900913 +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 +no_defs".

    i don't known which result is right and how to fix. any reply will be appreciated.

from where do you take toe 900913 definition?

try to use this code to perform coordinate conversion and verify if the results are correct:

I used the code in the link 


and the results are indeed different.

Your proj4 code has got the @nadgrids=null parameter which is (correctly) projecting the WGS84 coordinates with respect to the sphere, rather than the WGS84 ellipsoid. To get the same behaviour in proj.NET, try adding:


into the list of parameters in the WKT of your projection.
