I have imported a Text Delimited Layer that was a csv file with three fields id, lat, long. The layer shows up correctly and the values are in Feet. I need to convert the Feet to Decimal Degrees and then export the file. None of the menu options seem to point towards this goal. Can this be done? I have been searching for solutions on the Internet without luck so far.

Edit: I tried right clicking on the layer and Save As to csv, but it has the same values even after changing the CRS to a Decimal Degree projection.

1 Answer 1

  1. Change coordinate reference system in Project Properties (Ctrl+Shift+P) to WGS84
  2. Use Export/Add Geometry Columns (under Vector -> Geometry Tools). Calculate using Project CRS.
  • It says make sure the layer attr tables are closed - how do I do that.

  • Something was wrong with the project, I fix it and now it is working with the SaveAs -> CSV using the projects CRS.
