I'm running qgis 1.8, and trying to load a sid file into my map. It imports fine, but seems to ignore the sdw file that comes with it, as the raster shows up without any apparent georeferencing. Is there a way to force the info in the sdw file to be applied to the sid? Thank you for any insight.
I'm a total newbie to GIS software, and so it's to be expected that I would run into something stupid like this. I fell into the infamous "projection" trap. The raster layer was using a different projection from the rest of my project. All I needed to do was enable on-the-fly projection changes under the project settings. Thank you for all the help.
