Description

Shapefile data with proper projection attribution (EPSG: 2229, NAD83 / California zone 5 (ftUS)) is not properly recognized when loaded into QGIS.

My QGIS Options > CRS tab is set to 'Prompt for CRS' when layer is loaded that has no coordinate reference system. Tests have been run against other properly projected shapefiles and it appears this behavior is specific to EPSG 2229.

Perhaps this issue arises from the definition of the .prj file - my data is coming from http://www.countyofsb.org/itd/gis/default.aspx?id=2802 I am also seeing a significant difference between the .prj files when defining the projection with fTools - but will address that issue with Mr. Farmer.

Will be glad to attach any desired files. -joe

Replying to j03lar50n:

Shapefile data with proper projection attribution (EPSG: 2229, NAD83 / California zone 5 (ftUS)) is not properly recognized when loaded into QGIS.

For me QGIS recognizes the CRS OK.

1. Downloaded the http://www.countyofsb.org/itd/gis/metadata/agricultural_crops.html.

2. Load it into QGIS.

3. The recognized CRS proj4 definition is:

+proj=lcc +lat_1=34.03333333333333 +lat_2=35.46666666666667 +lat_0=33.5 +lon_0=-118 +x_0=2000000 +y_0=500000.0000000001 +ellps=GRS80 +datum=NAD83 +to_meter=0.3048006096012192 +no_defs
