DXF import, inverted longitude latitude
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Blender Version

Short description of error
Using georeferencing option in dxf importer, the resulting longitude/latitude in custom scene properties are inverted.

Error come from file line 179 in function georeference

latlon = transform(self.pScene, wgs84, center[0], center[1], center[2])
scene['latitude'] = latlon[0]
scene['longitude'] = latlon[1]
scene['altitude'] = latlon[2]

The function transform from the pyproj library return a tuple (longitude, latitude, altitude) so the code must be

lonlat = transform(self.pScene, wgs84, center[0], center[1], center[2])
scene['longitude'] = lonlat[0]
scene['latitude'] = lonlat[1]
scene['altitude'] = lonlat[2]

ok... next time maybe somebody not struggling with git wants to do it...
the bugfix by domlysz seems to be valid according to the pyproj documentation. I don't have test environment at hand atm. I expect the amount of users using pyproj to be very low anyway.
