Entire World Map QGIS Pisa 2.10.1 Mac Pro, Mac OS

I don't seem to be able to create a simple World Map using the Natural Earth Dataset and the Robinson World projection, unless I zoom in. What could be the problem?Zoom

This is a QGIS rendering issue.

Under Settings -> Options, Rendering tab, uncheck Enable feature simplification by default for newly added layers.

You have to remove and load again the Natural Earth dataset to see the difference.

  • Thanks, that worked. But now the same happens with rasters and I don't have the same options. What to do?

    It might help to reproject the raster first to the Robinson projection using Raster -> Projections -> Warp, and add the new file to the canvas. On-the-fly-reprojection has some issues on projections if points fall outside the valid range.
