Bug report #8895

Field calculator "Area"

Added by Jonathan Moules almost 10 years ago. Updated almost 10 years ago.

Affected QGIS version:2.0.1 Regression?:No
Operating System: Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:invalid
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:17573


I have a shapefile with two polygons - EPSG:27700 (British national grid).

- Enable editing
- Open field calculator
- "update existing field" (which is was set to a 10 width "real" at shapefile creation time)
- expression: $area

Result: One of them has a value of "0", the other one has a value of "243914090660769".

- save changes
- close table
- re open table

The one that was 0 is still 0. The other one has a new value: "-1397046367".

I guess maybe QGIS doesn't like the format I used for the number, but rather than provide erroneous results, QGIS should warn the user.

  • Resolution set to invalid

this issue was already fixed in master. It does happen when you have OTFR enabled, regardless if you are really reprojecting something.
