I would like to use the following wiki US Map schematic as a background to my map work. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Blank_US_Map.svg) It is a .svg file, and GeoReferencer is unable to import it.
- I convert it to it to a .tiff through cloudconvert.com
- I successfully import to GeoReferencer
- I pick corresponding coordinates to situate my map, and use NAD83 as reference
- Import in QGIS
=> PROBLEM: The map I have is distorted on QGIS (flattened)
What am I doing wrong? Should import in georeference in .svg ? (IF so what plugin to install since it is unable to import). Should I reference more coordinates ? (>10) Is there a setting I am missing? Am I using the wrong map?
I imagine many have had to import US map schematics in their QGIS, and face the similar challenge.
