I am working with open data from the City of Toronto. I am using a base layer of property boundaries which can be found here:
The default projection system I am using is WGS84. However, when I place the map, at any scale, in print composer the scale bar is completely wrong. I would like to find a way to measure distance from lot lines accurately, but need an accurate scale. I have tried changing the CRS settings without luck.
Also, is there a way in QGIS like there is in Autocad where if I know the distance between two points and input that, the scale of the shapefile will adjust to my measurement accordingly?
I am using QGIS 2.2 btw.
