In QGIS I want to transform a point shapefile from WGS84 to UTM32 (EPSG:4647). The result moves the point from somewhere in Norway to a position off the coast of Congo, Africa. Can anyone explain what's wrong?
As suggested by @bugmenot123, you have to save your layer as a new layer in order to take into account the new CRS you need. Here are the steps to follow:
- Right-click on layer name in the Layers group (see screenshot below)
UTM32as a CRS
- Give your layer a new name > click OK
- Add the new layer in QGIS and check your points position
