I am exploring QGIS 2.10.1-Pisa for the first time. I'm familiar with ArcMap, but I need to explore QGIS as an alternative.
I am having a hard time trying to figure out the units and scale situation. I've tried following a bunch of other forum posts with similar problems, but I'm still getting a wacky scale that doesn't seem to make sense.
I set the project CRS to State Plane Zone 3 ft (that's where my project and my data is), drag my aerial and shapefile in, but the scale is way wrong. The same data brought into ArcMap or AutoCAD looks right when I set the scale to 1:150. When I try the same in QGIS, the scale looks more like 1:20 or 1:40. I've tried different data with the same results.
