Bug report #13172

Qgis does not read well the .prj files

Added by Marc-André Saia almost 9 years ago. Updated almost 9 years ago.

Category:Projection Support
Affected QGIS version:2.10.0 Regression?:No
Operating System: Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:21235



The prj files from other programs that read well are not always by Qgis.
For example, a Mtm Nad 83 Zone 8 (EPSG 32188) is read as a 83 mmt Nad CSRS zone 8 (EPSG 2950).
To correct the situation, I have every time copy, paste and rename a file QPJ from an other file to have the good projection.

Yet qgis knows the difference between the two when he wrote and created correctly the prj.

The same problem applies to MapInfo tab files.

Qgis could automatically create a qpj from a good reading of the prj if it brings an advantage of operation.

Test.zip - Test.zip contain EPSG32188 and EPSG2950 (29.4 KB) Marc-André Saia, 2015-07-31 06:00 AM
