I have some a layer which contains some points. The coordinate of the points should be GPS points. However, the coordinate of these points are not correct. What should I do?

I am using QGIS. If I use Coordinate Reference System WGS84/EPSG4326, the coordinate of these points are around (, 0.3xxxx). However, the coordinate of these points should be around (103.xxxx, 1.3xxxx). The files are .shp files. The files should use WGS84 coordinate reference system.

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

We'll need some more information to go on. How do you know the points are incorrect? Where did the correct and incorrect points come from? In what way are they wrong? Which software are you using? What are you trying to achieve? – MerseyViking May 30 '12 at 12:32
We're still a bit short on detail. Are you using the GPX plugin, or are they coming from a CSV file? Are they definitely coming in as WGS84 long/lat? Are they being reprojected in QGIS, or is everything set up to use WGS84? As a guess, it sounds to me like it's a problem with your source data. – MerseyViking May 30 '12 at 14:17
