When I enter a proj string for any kind of geographic CRS in the text box, and give a pair of lat/lon degree values, the result for target CRS is always around 1. For projected CRS I get a reasonable result. If it is not wanted to test geographic CRS, a better error message should be given to the user.

When testing custom projections, show geographic results in degrees not radians

Fixes #7036


#1 Updated by Andre Joost almost 10 years ago

The output values are in radians, not degree. I think that does not make much sense.
