I have loaded GPS points into a QGIS vector layer. I also imported a vector line from a dxf file which doesn't have georeferencing.

I would like to fit in line geometry between the GPS points - how can I do this?

Please provide at least a screenshot. It's hard to understand the problem otherwise. Also more details on exactly what you are trying to do would be helpful. – underdark Nov 23 '12 at 10:12

Use an affine transformation, basically, you should use one layer as reference (target) and move the other layer (source). Read my answer in this post to get an idea on how to apply it to vector data.

yeah, I could do this but I wanted to do this in quick way. So I just edit line and move it to GPS position. But thanks anyway. :) – Krystian Mar 26 '15 at 10:25
