Does QGIS support NAD83 Montana State Plane Zone, US Foot? I have vector data in a CSV file that I would like to display, but the coordinate system is MT83F. I don't see a matching CRS. Is there a user defined CRS that is appropriate?

QGIS has a CRS for NAD83 Montana State Plane Zone (ft), it's EPSG:2256.

  • Thanks Brad. That was very helpful. I Tried searching for Montana in QGIS CRS selector but it did not find a match for some reason.

  • @SeanL you probably need to set 'Search within' to search for names not IDs in the CRS selection box.
