I have a point file saved as a shapefile, now I want to produce a heatmap of the values. However the heatmap is projected upside down. I suspect my y coordinates are inverted or negative but I do not know how to fix it. Can somebody help?

enter image description here

  • I'm ussing the 2.14.2 verssion and i found the same problem, i have a point file and i want to produce a heatmap in ESRI .hdr format, the raster file is projected upside down... So the bug is not fixed yet – user73111 May 12 '16 at 19:02

This issue could be related to the following bug: Heatmap generated TIF with bad CRS. In that case, you either have to wait for/support a fix or use a different tool.

  • Well - that bug is already fixed, it's just waiting on 2.8.2 to be released. You can use the ltr-dev version in the meantime or wait for the formal release. – ndawson Mar 16 '15 at 20:51
  • Good to hear that the issue is fixed @ndawson. Strange that the ticket is still open though ... Any idea why? – underdark Mar 16 '15 at 22:33
  • The issue with the display is fixed, but there's still something slightly wrong in how the heatmap plugin is creating the raster (eg GDAL gives odd metadata values). – ndawson Mar 16 '15 at 22:47
