In May 2012, a question was asked about File Geodatabase (*.gdb) support in QGIS?

In the comments there, it was pointed out by @MattWilkie that the FileGDB SDK does not support custom coordinate systems.

Has there been a workaround developed for custom coordinate systems?

  • Adding custom projection support is on the FGDB API 1.4 enhancement list, but the final feature list has not been announced. – Vince Jul 23 '14 at 11:35

You can use alternative GDAL driver "OpenFileGDB" which supports also other projections http://www.gdal.org/drv_openfilegdb.html.

  • Note that GDAL 1.11 or higher is required to use this, which may not be the default yet when installing from OSGeo4w. – Evil Genius Jul 23 '14 at 10:43
