Bug report #10309

On-the-fly projection of EPSG 4326 World Map gives weird results with specific target systems

Added by mlennert - about 10 years ago. Updated over 7 years ago.

Category:Projection Support
Affected QGIS version:2.2.0 Regression?:No
Operating System: Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:worksforme
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:18734


  • Open in QGIS 2.2 (Debian Testing package 2.2.0-1+b2)
  • Reproject on-the-fly to World-Mollweide (EPSG 54009) and to NSIDC EASE-Grid Global (EPSG 3410): very weird results (see attached images)
  • Create a new shapefile in either of the two projections using Save as... the result shows none of that weirdness (see mollweide-saveas.jpg)

We were able to reproduce on Debian Testing, Win 7 and Mac OSX.
