Bug report #710
Shapefiles not matching up with satellite imagery, even though both are WGS84
|Affected QGIS version:||Regression?:||No|
|Operating System:||Debian||Easy fix?:||No|
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||Resolution:||worksforme|
|Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:||Copied to github as #:||10769|
Steps to reproduce:
> Add WMS Layer(2,52)
2. Select NASA (JPL) and click "Connect"
3. Click "global_mosaic" and click "Add"
4. Zoom in, e.g. (-8,60)
5. Layer -> Add a Vector Layer
6. Double-click a shapefile (I'm trying to use SRTM Water Body Dataset shapefiles, e.g. "w005n57e.shp", downloaded from "ftp://e0srp01u.ecs.nasa.gov/srtm/version2/SWBD/")
The shapefile is displayed, but in the wrong place and the wrong size, i.e. the vector outline of water bodies does not match the water bodies visible in the satellite image.
- OS: Ubuntu 7.04
- Hardware: Pentium M 1.8, 1GB RAM
- QGIS Version: 0.8.0 (Ubuntu packages from download.qgis.org, to get them to install I had to install libgdal1-1.3.1-6 from Ubuntu 6.10.)
- I have checked the reference system in the properties of each layer, and the project properties. They are all WGS84.
