This question already has an answer here:
I am still new to this, so I apologise if I don't make a lot of sense!
I am using QGIS 2.4.0 Chugiak.
I am working on a project set to the GDA94/MGA Zone 50 coordinate system with 'on the fly transformation' enabled. I have added a shapefile that was created in ArcGis and set the coordinate system to the same as the projects (GDA94/MGA Zone 50). However, the shapefile is projecting at a much larger scale and A LOT further away than it should be. I have tried changing the coordinate system of the shapefile and reprojecting the shapefile, but haven't had any luck.
Any chance someone may be able to help?
