I want to open several points that I exported from Google Earth as a KML in QGIS for further use. I can import the data and the points are displayed but something must be wrong with the projection as the points are plotted somewhere completely different.
When I open the KML separately the projection of the file is in WGS84 EPSG:4326 (which was also the setting of the original project). I enabled projection on the fly and also tried exporting the KML as a shapefile in different projections but it didn't work.
Is it maybe due to the fact the data are formatted in degrees / minutes and how can I adjust that?
I use QGIS 2.0.1 on a Mac.
