WMS not visible in AutoCAD Map

May 22, 2014

Issue:

FDO connection to WMS doesn't show data in AutoCAD Map 2013 and 2014 (but does show in 2012) if ETRS89.utm-32n is attached.

Causes:

Incorrect range of CS ETRS89.utm-32n in AutoCAD Map library.

Solution:

Try this Workaround:

  1. Open MAPCSLIBRARY.
  2. Duplicate the ETRS89/UTM32 Coordinate System and edit the Useful Range of maximum and minimum Latitude: min=49.0 max=54.0.
  3. Assign duplicated coordinate system to the drawing and connect to WMS server and display data.

Result: All data are displayed.
